Yahoo's Top Lawyer Lost Job Over Data Breach

Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer has gotten her pay docked — giving up a cash bonus from 2016 and a stock award for 2017 — for the massive breach of the Internet giant’s customer database. Yahoo’s head lawyer, Ron Bell, got bounced for not doing his job, said the company, which noted that the “Committee found that the relevant legal team had sufficient information to warrant substantial further inquiry in 2014, and they did not sufficiently pursue it.”
