James Murdoch Resigns From Sotheby's Board
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters welcomes the long-awaited resignation of James Murdoch from the Sotheby's (NYSE: BID) board of directors. The Teamsters Affiliates Pension Plan, a shareholder of Sotheby's, was first to call for this board change in a letter to Sotheby's Chairman Michael Sovern on Sept. 14, 2011, citing concerns about his credibility, availability and performance in the wake of the News Corp. (NASDAQ: NWS) phone hacking scandal.
