Apple Facing Lawsuit from Prominent Hedge Fund Boss
Apple is no stranger to lawsuits, but the latest legal skirmish is unorthodox when compared to the intellectual property and patent-related matters that usually deliver Apple to the courtroom.
Prominent hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who oversees management of Greenlight Capital, has filed a lawsuit against Apple in response to a growing "cash problem" the company purportedly exhibits. Blasting Apple's hoarding tendencies, Einhorn says Apple's $137 billion in cash-on-hand shouldn't be so far removed from shareholders.
Greenlight is backing the lawsuit in federal court, hoping it will force Apple to modify a proposal in its proxy. Specifically, Greenlight is opposed to a proposal that would remove Apple's ability to issue preferred stock from its charter.
Greenlight is encouraging investors to vote against "Proposal 2" when the Apple shareholder meeting takes place in three weeks on February 27.
Einhorn, a well-known short seller, is long on Apple shares. In a television interview on Thursday, he said that while he admires the company, it has a "cash problem" that it needs to fix by giving away perpetual preferred stock with a 4 percent yield.

Ya short seller and he wants his money NOW!!! It's up to Apple to release dividends and how much to its shareholders. He's just trying to hurry up and push them to pay so he can dump his apple shares.

Off topic sorry. "Notes" app broken after 6.1 jailbreak? Something to look into. Not working on my iPad 2 or 4S after jailbreak.

This asshat makes his living as a parasite. Apple needs to bury him deep. I don't care so much about Apple's policies that make JB more difficult, but so far they have not teased one iOS that couldn't be 0wned. In this case I'm with apple and they should stomp this pukes butt so hard he has to go back to stealing tip cash left in restaurants.
