California Attorney General Bill Lockyer filed charges in Santa Clara County Superior Court against former Chairwoman Patricia Dunn; ousted HP senior counsel and ethics director Kevin Hunsaker; private investigator Ronald DeLia; records dealer Joseph DePante; and Bryan Wagner, who did work for DePante.
