(Corrects date of board meeting to May 25, not May 24)
SAO PAULO Oct 5 Brazilian steelmaker Companhia
Siderúrgica Nacional said on Wednesday a court ruling
that annulled the appointment of a new chief executive at Usinas
Siderúrgicas de Minas Gerais SA was the result of a
shareholder dispute that was harming the company.
In a statement sent to Reuters, CSN said the decision by a
regional court in Minas Gerais to annul the decisions of a May
25 meeting of Usiminas' board was "the fallout from an insane
fight among the controllers of Usiminas, which is prejudicial to
the company and its shareholders."
