Charges Dropped in HP Pretexting Cases

Here is an interesting note from the world of white collar crime. Remember the big news splash over HP's "pretexting" case, where executives were publicly humiliated and forced to resign, being charged with multiple felonies including fraudulently obtaining confidential records, identity theft, accessing computer data without authorization, and conspiracy?

The charges have all been tossed out by the court.

The prosecutor was California's former Attorney General Bill Lockyer, who is now the state Treasurer.
