I previously worked with Judge Short at the Minnesota Court of Appeals and Dorsey and Whitney. I hold her in the highest regard. United Health is priviledged to get such a talented attorney and leader.

Hmmm....their stock is down. I'm actually curious--really because these companies don't do anything but try to keep their stocks going up in price. There was one mention of a publicly traded company in the news being 'hired' for some US Armed Forces contract by the Pentegon. Now -- really the pentagon may be obsessed with their 'stock' but is there any reason these companies should be involved in National Security and be stealing our tax money for their useless 'gambling' practices. Perhaps it is time we took 'stock' of our 'leaders' once again and tried to get them to be a little more 'honest' in this old world of ours!!

I expect she'll exchange $400K in comp for $2M. Nice "opportunity."

She's going to have her hands full defending the actions of this corrupt company.

Uh... folks.... she doesn't need the money. Duh. Regardless, has it crossed anyone's mind that hiring someone with such high integrity and morals is a good thing - that she will straighten out whatever moral and ethical issues they might have?

thepoint - you are sorely mistaken if you think her comp as the managing partner of Dorsey was $400k. It was likely 10 to 20x that amount. I wouldn't be surprised if she took a pay cut to join UHG (doubt it, but it wouldn't surprise me).

Ms. Short was an outstanding judge and much sought after attorney especially in the Health field. She makes Minnesota proud. Good Luck Marianne Short show United Health that you can have ethics and ability for success!

I have the pleasure to interact with Marianne and UHC is the winner in this matter. Marianne has sided against insurers in the past and will always take the high road.
