Motorola ex-CFO says fired for doubting forecasts

EE Times: "Motorola Inc's ex-Chief Financial Officer, Paul Liska, said in a lawsuit unsealed Thursday he was fired for warning company officials the 2009 business plan for its mobile devices unit was based on "unsubstantiated and misleading financial forecasts."

Liska "had been sounding increasingly urgent warnings to others in the company," including co-CEO Greg Brown, that the mobile unit -- responsible for 40 percent of the company's 2008 revenues -- had no viable business plan as of mid-January."

The story is too old to be commented.
