Larry Sonsini has been invited, along with Ann Baskins, Patricia Dunn and a Boston PI, to testify before Congress later this month on their various roles in the HP pretexting scandal. The invitations, issued by the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, asks them to appear for sworn testimony on Sept. 28.
The letter (.pdf) to the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati partner says, in part: “Given the circumstances surrounding this particular case of pretexting involving the highest levels of corporate governance within Hewlett-Packard Company,” — that’s Dunn — “the company’s general counsel” — that’s Ann Baskins — “and the Board of Director’s outside counsel” — that, of course, would be the ever-busy Sonsini — “I ask that you carefully consider this hearing an opportunity to be fully open and transparent with the testimony you provide.”
The fourth recipient, Ronald DeLia, is the managing director of Security Outsourcing Solutions, the Needham, Mass., firm that the Wall Street Journal has identified in connection with the hacking of directors’ phone records.
