Solyndra said in papers filed in Delaware bankruptcy court Oct. 12 that Chief Executive Officer Brian Harrison resigned from the company.

The Washington Post reports that Harrison’s resignation was contemplated even before the company sought bankruptcy protection. He left his position Oct. 7.

Solyndra received a $535 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy in 2009, but filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in August 2011.
