Former Broadcom GC David Dull avoided criminal charges in a stock options backdating case this week following claims of prosecutorial misconduct. He is expected to reach a nonprosecution agreement with the government, according to court documents. Dull has not been criminally charged in the case but is considered to be a co-conspirator in the government's indictment, which leveled securities fraud charges against Broadcom's former CEO and former CFO. The SEC also sued Dull in a related civil action.
