A Florida judge has dismissed a lawsuit that three CSX shareholders had filed last summer against the carrier regarding the 2017 hiring of late CEO E. Hunter Harrison.
The matter was settled by Virginia state law, which required that the suit be dismissed after a committee of “disinterested” CSX board members determined that the suit, which involved the company suing itself, should not go forward.
The shareholders who filed the lawsuit, John Robertson, James Ekis and George Triefenbach, have the option of filing an amended derivative complaint 30 days after the June 3 dismissal by Judge Kevin Blasz of Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit Court.
