Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) - Get Report Senior Counsel Kevin Hunsaker has reportedly left the company as part of the fallout from an ill-conceived plot to ferret out press leaks by the company's board.

Dow Jones Newswires

reported late Tuesday that according to an H-P spokesman, Hunsaker, who has been subpoenaed to appear before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on Thursday, had stepped down.

The departure of Hunsaker, who headed up the second phase of H-P's investigation into boardroom leaks, follows the resignations of Patricia Dunn, who quit as H-P chairwoman on Friday, and Anthony Gentilucci, who resigned as head of H-P's global security operations on Monday.

Shares of H-P closed off a penny to $35.70.
