Not entirely satisfied with Michael Eisner's removal as chairman of Walt Disney Co., six of the largest U.S. state pension funds, including the company California Public Employees' Retirement System and the New York State Common Retirement Fund, demanded an audience with the Disney's full board of directors to discuss the company's performance and corporate governance issues. But the investor groups seem to be taking a more conciliatory tone toward Eisner personally, and stopped short of calling for his ouster as chief executive officer, though the succession plan is thought to be an issue they would like to see resolved.
