Halliburton Co. (NYSE:HAL): Closing price $49.54
Halliburton said Thursday that the Department of Justice concluded its inquiry of the oil company’s role in the Macondo well incident. A federal judge in New Orleans accepted a single misdemeanor guilty plea for the unauthorized deletion of a computer record that was created after the Macondo well incident and imposed a fine of $200,000 and three years’ probation. The matter was resolved through a previously announced cooperation plea accord between a Halliburton subsidiary and the government agency.
