Under the terms of the Stipulation, the parties agreed the Derivative Action will be dismissed in exchange for implementation of certain corporate governance changes and payment of plaintiff's attorneys' expenses in an amount not to exceed $6,000.00. Except for this payment, the parties shall bear their own attorneys' fees in connection with the Derivative Action. The Stipulation remains subject to the satisfaction of various conditions, including without limitation final approval of the Stipulation by the Court.
"This settlement puts the derivative securities litigation behind Tripath at minimal expense," said Jeffrey L. Garon, Tripath's Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer.
