From Chain Store Age
Barnes & Noble Founder and Chairman Leonard Riggio agreed on Wednesday to forgo $29 million from a sale of one of his companies to the book retailer in order to settle a shareholder lawsuit, according to court documents, Reuters reported.

Shareholders sued Riggio, saying the deal overvalued the college bookstores and enriched Riggio, Barnes & Noble’s largest investor, at the expense of shareholders.
