Michael T. Anderson Writes Tenth Circuit Amicus Brief for NELA
Michael T. Anderson authored an amicus brief submitted in Lockheed Martin Corp. v. Department of Labor, et al., a case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. The brief was written for the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA). The case involves a whistleblower who suffered retaliation, eventually being forced to resign her position, after reporting fraud at Lockheed Martin, a publicly traded company.
The brief addresses whether Sarbanes-Oxley's whistleblower protections only apply to cases where there is fraud against shareholders and whether a whistleblower's complaint must recite the relevant statute and prove-up all the elements of the statute in order to receive protection from retaliation. The NELA brief argues that the answer to both questions is no.
