Andersen Divorce Delayed 90 Days

The arbitrator ruling on the separation of Arthur Andersen and Andersen Consulting has delayed releasing his findings until July 31. A decision on the split was due by the end of April.

A quick end to the proceedings seemed likely after Consulting chief Joe Forehand said he was prepared to enter round-table discussions with Arthur Andersen.

But a spokesperson for Andersen said that nothing further had been pursued down this path. He also warned that the profession may well hear more about the divorce from the arbitrator before the end of July.
