Another one bites the dust

“Barnes & Noble Details CEO Firing,” The Wall Street Journal, October 31, 2018 B1.  CEO allegedly fired for sexual harassment and bullying, and interfering with the sale of B&N.

So, the CEO gets canned.  No severance package.  What message does this send to the rest of the organization (and, indeed, to other CEOs and other companies)?  How does the Board look on this one?  From a Compliance standpoint, and a Governance one, looks pretty good.

Might this be a pretext?  Could he have been fired for some other reason?
