Report: Yahoo director on hot seat to leave board

Associated Press
Published:
SAN FRANCISCO — A published report says a Yahoo director who didn't challenge an inaccuracy in CEO Scott Thompson's academic record will step down from the troubled Internet company's board.
Patti Hart, the head of the Yahoo search committee that hired Thompson in January, won't seek re-election at the company's annual meeting later this year. That's what unnamed people close to the situation told All Things D, a technology blog affiliated with The Wall Street Journal.
All Things D said Hart's departure could be announced later Tuesday.
Yahoo Inc. had no immediate comment.
Hart's resignation would make her the first casualty of a dust-up caused by the recent exposure of a bogus college degree that has periodically appeared in Thompson's official biography.
The bio included a computer science degree that Thompson never received.
