IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Broadcom co-founder Henry Samueli has resumed working for the chipmaker after a federal judge dismissed a criminal charge against him.

Company spokesman Bill Blanning said Tuesday that Samueli rejoined Irvine, Calif.-based Broadcom in December as the company’s senior vice president and chief technical officer.

Samueli took a leave of absence in 2008 during a probe into allegations of illegal stock options backdating.

Last month, a federal judge dismissed criminal charges against two other Broadcom officials related to backdating allegations and vacated a guilty plea by Samueli to a single count of lying to Securities and Exchange Commission investigators.
