    sided with him = take the side of him

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?

    “And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him.“

    side with him = take the side of him

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    "took his part" - supported him.
