PCAOB Censures D&T

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board fined Deloitte & Touche $1 million and censured the firm for shoddy work in auditing the books of Ligand Pharmaceuticals.  It is the board's first enforcement action against a Big Four Accounting firm.  D&T agreed to settle charges that it failed to perform appropriate and adequate procedures in a 2004 audit.  The company later had to restate its financial results for the period because of non-compliance with GAAP.  WSJ, Deloitte Receives $1 Million Fine.
