Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B). Telecom. Down 85 cents, or 1.52 per cent, to $54.99. Rogers Communications Inc. is launching a countersuit against former CEO Joe Natale that looks to have him repay more than $15 million in severance to the company that fired him. In a filing in Ontario Superior Court on Tuesday, the telecommunications giant claimed Natale tried to subvert corporate governance and his fiduciary duties for personal gain. Rogers said it has no further obligations to the former CEO, and that he must now answer for his conduct. None of the claims have been tested in court. The company's statement of claim comes less than three weeks after Natale filed suit against Rogers for wrongful dismissal and breach of contract, while alleging chairman Edward Rogers carried out what the suit deemed malicious conduct.
