Andersen Votes

NPR's Cheryl Corley reports on the latest efforts by the Arthur Andersen accounting firm to save itself. During a five-hour closed circuit teleconference yesterday, Andersen executives in Chicago and the company's 1,700 partners across the country, talked about former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker's plan for rescuing Andersen. The plan requires that federal charges of obstructing justice be dropped. But the Justice Department already has indicted Andersen, and the judge in the case may not be able to dismiss the indictment.
