Clients Roy E. Disney and Stanley P. Gold noted for their "Vote No" campaign against CEO Michael D. Eisner of the Walt Disney Company, The New York Times, "Defied in Vote, Disney Leader Loses One Post"

In its article entitled "Defied in Vote, Disney Leader Loses One Post," the March 4th New York Times noted that "[i]n a remarkable vote of defiance against a once unassailable executive, shareholders owning an estimated 43 percent of the Walt Disney Company declined on Wednesday to support the re-election of Michael D. Eisner, the chairman and chief executive, to the board. The mounting shareholder dissent prodded the board to strip Mr. Eisner of the chairman's title Wednesday night and give it to George J. Mitchell, Disney's presiding director and a former senator....Mr. Eisner, who was unopposed and thus was re-elected to the board, was not the only board member to face significant shareholder dissent, although the percentages of votes withheld for the other 10 nominees were not as high....[T]wo former directors [are] leading a campaign to oust Mr. Eisner - Roy E. Disney, the nephew of the company's founder, and Stanley P. Gold."
