Joseph Berardino said he's stepping down to demonstrate that Andersen is serious about reform and deserves to stay in business. His resignation occurs less than two weeks after the Justice Department indicted Andersen on charges of obstructing justice, allegedly for destroying documents related to its audits of Enron.
