A report now claims that OpenAI’s CTO Mira Murati played a key role in Sam Altman’s ouster.

Over three months ago, CEO Sam Altman was ousted from OpenAI. At the time, OpenAI said that they no longer had faith in Sam Altman’s ability to lead the company. He was reinstated as the CEO five days after his ouster after many company’s employees threatened to quit and join Microsoft if he wasn’t back. Returning to the position, Sam Altman fired all previous board members to form a new board.

Although Hannah Wong, OpenAI’s spokesperson, then said that the company’s senior leadership team which was led by Mira Murati as interim chief executive, had requested Sam Altman’s return. The spokesperson said, “The strong support from his team underscores that he is an effective CEO who is open to different points of view, willing to solve complex challenges, and who demonstrates care for his team. We look forward to findings from the independent review versus unsubstantiated claims.”

Currently law firm WilmerHale is conducting an investigation into the same and results will be released soon, the report claimed.
