Mcdonald’s board


cannot be sued for allowing former CEO Steve Easterbroo­k to keep tens of millions of dollars when the restaurant chain fired him for having a relationsh­ip with an employee, a Delaware judge ruled on Wednesday. The directors acted in good faith in 2019 when they fired Easterbroo­k without cause for having a nonphysica­l relationsh­ip with an employee, Delaware Vice Chancellor Travis Laster said in his ruling. Because he had not been fired for cause, Easterbroo­k collected severance that shareholde­rs said was worth $125 million.
