SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday granted preliminary approval to Hewlett-Packard Co's <HPQ.N> settlement of shareholder litigation involving the information technology company's botched acquisition of Autonomy Plc.

The ruling, from U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco, comes after HP failed to win approval of two previous proposed deals.
