After not-so-happily resigning as Disney CEO last week, Michael Eisner has also left the Disney board of directors several months earlier than expected, presumably to prevent any conflicts of interest with his future projects.

From the LAT:
Eisner had no comment, Disney spokeswoman Zenia Mucha said.
And there you have it. A weirdly silent exit for a big macher. Looking forward to the ‘catching up with Michael Eisner’ feature in the LAT Home section in a year or two.
