Icahn Still Harping on eBay's 2009 Skype Sale

Icahn is intent on proving that eBay was somehow duped into selling — or chose to sell — Skype to a consortium because eBay board member Marc Andreessen was a part of it, instead of selling it to its eventual owner Microsoft. Ebay, which Icahn says has agreed to let him view only some of the documents, has denied these accusations.
