Although Disney discovered options backdating at Pixar the company has cleared Steve Jobs of any wrongdoing. According to SiliconValley.com:

An internal investigation concluded that Pixar backdated stock options before Walt Disney acquired the film studio, but "no one currently associated with the Company engaged in any intentional or deliberate acts of misconduct," according to a statement issued by Disney's chairman Friday.

He's still not out of the woods yet however. Jobs has been under scrutiny for his role in granting Apple stock options since he admitted last year that he was aware the company was backdating stock options given to executives and employees and that he helped pick favorable dates.
