Court Throws News Corp. Shareholder Rights Lawsuit

A Delaware judge dismissed a lawsuit against News Corp. over shareholder rights related to its split with 21st Century Fox Inc. The lawsuit, filed August 2014 by News Corp. shareholder Miramar Police Officers' Retirement Plan, claimed that the company and some of its officers, including Chairman Rupert Murdoch, breached contract and fiduciary duties by neglecting an old settlement agreement over shareholder rights when the company split. In the ruling, the judge ruled that the settlement agreement does not prevent the company from spinning off some of its assets to a new public corporation that will not be subject to that agreement.
