Remember Tim Bucher? The guy who was promoted to head of Macintosh Hardware Engineering but then left the company under strange circumstances last November? Well, he was in fact fired, and now he’s suing Apple for wrongful termination, alleging the company “terminated him without cause and failed to pay all due compensation, including restricted stock grants and a bonus”, according to Ina Fried’s report for CNet News.
If you read between the lines in Fried’s report, the gist of it seems to be that Bucher took on too many responsibilities, and that Steve Jobs and Tim Cook thought he was cracking.
