US Briefing: Jobs subpoenaed in Apple GC probe
The Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) has subpoenaed Apple chief executive Steve Jobs to be deposed in the agency's case against the company's former general counsel, Nancy Heinen, according to a source familiar with the case. Observers say the subpoena isn't surprising given Jobs' connection to the specific stock option grants the SEC says Heinen handled fraudulently. Heinen is accused of falsifying board approval paperwork for several executive-team grants from February 2001 and a huge grant to Jobs in December 2001.
