AOL Time Warner chairman Stephen Case is expected to emerge unscathed from the company's board meeting today.
Sources close to Case have told the New York Times that he is determined to fight back against his critics, who hold him responsible for the media giant's poor performance.
His supporters argue that he has been removed from day-to-day operations and cannot be held responsible.
Case intends to continue to take a back seat to chief executive Richard Parsons who has offered his support.
But, while enough members of the board are likely to back him, the New York Times warned that he still faces significant opposition in the months ahead.
