DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating potential legal claims against the Board of Directors of Dole Food Company (“Dole”) (NYSE: DOLE) related to a going private proposal from its Chairman. Under the terms of the proposal, worth approximately $1.6 billion, Dole's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. David H.
