Report: Apple falsified stock options documents

Updated

Federal prosecutors are investigating stock option documents at Apple that were reportedly falsified by company officials, according to a report by Law.com. The report also says that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has hired his own legal representation to deal with investigators from the SEC and Justice Department. The article does not say which documents were allegedly falsified, but Apple previously stated that “stock option grants made on 15 dates between 1997 and 2002 appear to have grant dates that precede the approval of those grants.”
