US Briefing: Sallie Mae GC resigns - quietly
Sallie Mae has been in the headlines a lot lately. Maybe that's why it didn't bother announcing that its top lawyer resigned last week. General counsel Robert Lavet stepped down on 31 January after 16 years at the student loan consolidator formally known as SLM Corporation. Lavet's resignation came three days after Sallie Mae settled a suit against a buy-out group that abandoned a $25.3bn bid for the company. Both Lavet and a Sallie Mae spokesman say the GC's resignation had nothing to do with the settlement.
