The letter that led to the ouster of former HP CEO Mark Hurd has gone public, exposing details of Hurd's alleged sexual harassment and a possible leak of insider information.
Questions remain, however, as to whether the letter's allegations are true.
Attorney Gloria Allred wrote the eight-page letter to Mark Hurd in 2010, accusing Hurd of sexually harassing HP contractor Jodie Fisher. Hurd had hired Fisher, a reality TV show contestant and porn actress, to host corporate events, The New York Times reports.
But instead of pursuing a business relationship, Mark Hurd made aggressive, unwanted romantic advances toward Fisher, Allred's letter claims. "[I]t is clear you had designs to make her your lover from the onset, using your status and authority as CEO of HP," the letter says, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
