Bartz resigns from Yahoo board

Carol Bartz has resigned from Yahoo’s board, a spokesperson has confirmed, three days after the company’s board fired her from her post as chief executive. Bartz had previously said that she planned to remain on the internet company's board of directors, a statement that conflicted with that of a company spokesman, who said Bartz would have to give up her board seat. After being fired, Bartz gave an inflammatory interview to Fortune magazine in which she issued a four-letter tirade against Yahoo executives.
