Slashdot | Court Rules Ellison Must Donate $100M to Charity

Slashdot | Court Rules Ellison Must Donate $100M to Charity: “‘As part of a settlement for insider trading allegations, a California judge has ordered that Larry Ellison donate $100 million to charity. CNet reports, ‘The charity payments are an unusual way to settle such a case.
