Covington & Burling and Debevoise & Plimpton to investigate allegations about Chairman and Chief Executive
CBS board left Moonves in his post on Monday as it discussed sexual harassment claims against him.
CBS Corp said on Wednesday law firms Covington & Burling and Debevoise & Plimpton will conduct a full investigation into the allegations about Chairman and Chief Executive Leslie Moonves, CBS News and cultural issues in the company.
Moonves is the latest executive to come under scrutiny by the #MeToo social movement, which has sought to hold accountable male business leaders, politicians and entertainers for sexual misconduct, leading to resignations in major corporations, Hollywood and among lawmakers.
