Mike Huckman on CNBC has the scoop, he is at the shareholder meeting LIVE:

BiogenIdec declared the meeting and voting in recess until 200pm..they are keeping voting open!

Carl’s people say they have already won seats on the board with their dissident shareholder platform, and BiogenIdec is keeping the voting open and calling blocks of shareholders to try to get them to change their votes…shades of Indiana, Gary, Dem primary last year, or any Illinois election apparently, lol,…

Carl will have none of it, and this Whale is headed to DE court now to get I am guessing an injunction..

I love this kind of action :)), here is a Carl on FastMoney 9/08, love when Karen crushes on Carl, lol

Carl Icahn schools the crowd on CNBC’s Fast Money. This show was aired on September 19, 2008 – live in New York from the Time Warner Bldg overlooking Columbus Circle and hosted by Dylan Ratigan. This was a town hall style show, with guest Carl Icahn, discussing the future of Wall St. Quote: “…eventually you’re gonna have all MORONS running the company.” – Carl Icahn
