Investor Carl Icahn filed a lawsuit on Thursday to try to block Dell from
setting a new record date ahead of a crucial shareholders' vote, which will
decide on the future of the company.
Icahn has urged fellow shareholders to reject Chief Executive Officer Michael
Dell's and Silver Lake's offer to buy and take the company private.
His lawsuit included a list of demands, such as that the CEO and his affiliates
be prevented from voting any shares bought after February 5, Reuters reported.
