Monster Settles With SEC

Monster (NYSE:MWW) settled with the SEC and paid a fine of $2.5 million relating to option back-dating. While everyone realizes that they now have new management the shareholder is still being penalized. Headlines all point to previous executives being found guilty by jury. I have not yet been able to find any reference of Director and Officer Liability insurance covering some or all of the costs. Does the investor have to suck up everything.
