The Miami Firefighters Relief and Pension Fund filed the lawsuit against Icahn and an investment vehicle he controls, the report said. (

Carl Icahn and the pension fund did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment.

HP in November rejected Xerox’s $33.5 billion buyout bid, prompting the printer maker to make plans to go hostile.

Earlier this month, Icahn, who owned 4.2% of HP as of Sept. 30, urged the personal computer maker’s shareholders who agree with the merger with Xerox to reach out to its directors.

Icahn also owns a near 11% stake in Xerox, making him the company’s largest shareholder.
