ABSTRACT
The article examines the competing interests between corporate director's accountability and authority within the doctrinal developments underpinning the director oversight liability arguments in the U.S. It mentions that the financial losses facing companies have brought the role of corporate directors as risk managers under renewed public scrutiny. A proposed alternative judicial approach to analyzing director oversight liability is also discussed.
