A potential hitch in Zuckerberg’s stock plan for Facebook

Steven Davidoff Solomon writes for The New York Times, Dec. 13, 2016

To prevent Mr. Zuckerberg from further cementing his grip on Facebook, shareholders have sued in a Delaware court, seeking to block the stock plan. A similar legal effort was tried against Google’s new class of shares, but that lawsuit was settled on terms that I described as providing little benefit to shareholders. This time around, however, the plaintiffs’ lawyers may have hit pay dirt.
