Florida to Consider Sanctions Against Andersen
Last week, the committee interviewed Martha Willis, director of the Florida Board of Accountancy, and asked that the Board provide Senator Campbell with the paperwork necessary to file a complaint against Andersen and Deloitte & Touche.
"Hopefully you won't find anything," Senator Campbell said.
The Florida Board of Accountancy took no action against Andersen last year when the firm settled  with Florida-based Sunbeam Corporation. Andersen paid the bankrupt Sunbeam's shareholders $110 million in a lawsuit over work performed for the appliance company.
Connecticut, New York, and Illinois are among other states that have announced plans to investigate Andersen following Andersen's admitted document destruction relating to the firm's audit of Enron.
