MUMBAI:  US Network CBS has not yet taken any legal action against CEO Leslie Moonves as its board of directors investigates claims of sexual misconduct against the media titan. On Monday, the company board meeting said that it is in the process of selecting outside counsel to conduct an independent investigation.

The New Yorker recently released an expose detailing sexual misconduct which was claimed from half a dozen women against Moonves. The allegations come as CBS is at the centre of a very public legal dispute with Shari Redstone and her National Amusements for control of the company.  It was a decision by the board to force Moonves to take a leave of absence. Meanwhile, the investigation is being viewed as a win for Redstone who is trying to merge CBS and Viacom.

CBS ad sales chief Jo Ann Ross expressed her support for Moonves on Twitter last week, "My experience with him on a professional and personal basis has never had any hint of the behaviour this story refers to," Ross said on Twitter on Friday night in response to The New Yorker article, which includes sexual misconduct allegations against Moonves by six women, including actress Illeana Douglas.
