ABSTRACT
In a shocker that has shaken up the leadership of the Writers Guild of America West, President Victoria Riskin has resigned as a result of a guild investigative report declaring that she was ineligible at the time she ran for re-election. Former chair of the National Labor Relations Board William Gould's report recommended that the board declare Riskin ineligible for the September 2003 election, in effect recommending that her election be overturned. According to the guild, its constitution stipulates that the union's vice president succeeds to the presidency. Charles Holland, who held that position, assumed the presidential duties immediately following Riskin's resignation.
