Sanjay Kumar, former Computer Associates International Inc. chief executive, pleaded not guilty to charges of securities fraud and obstruction of justice today. The charges stem from a two-year investigation into accounting fraud at the company.
As reported yesterday on JURIST's Paper Chase, Kumar's indictment was unsealed on Wednesday after Computer Associates agreed to pay shareholders $225 million in a settlement of charges that the company improperly booked $2.2 billion in revenue.
