  • Are High Net Worth People Leaving Illinois?

    The Illinois Policy Institute has examined IRS data, and thinks this is a problem.

  • UMW President Denies School’s Failure to Protect Students from App Threats

    In a letter University of Mary Washington President Richard V. Hurley made public this week, UMW continues to deny allegations that the university failed to protect students from threats leveled against members of a campus feminist group. Instead, Hurley lambasted Feminists United members for publicly voicing their concerns that the university failed to respond to their reports that they were being threatened with physical violence based on their gender. He blamed members of Feminists United for initiating “a highly-publicized media campaign with unsubstantiated claims and misinformation.” In an unavailing effort to rebut their claims, President Hurley insisted that the university had met the Yik-Yak threats “head-on,” by consulting with legal counsel on possible actions to limit Yik-Yak’s presence on campus and by providing security for one member of FUC for one evening. Members of Feminist United and their lawyer, Debra Katz, disagree. “I find it disconcerting that President Hurley seems not to understand the university’s obligation…to provide a campus that is free of threats via anonymous posts,” said Katz in response to Hurley’s recent letter. According to Katz, the manner in which President Hurley chose to disseminate what was captioned as a private letter to Eleanor Smeal suggests that his real motivation was to retaliate against his critics by disparaging their motivations and actions to the entire University community and the media.

  • The Senate 'Makes Good' On Congress' Antitrust Promises

    Katz, Marshall & Banks partners Debra S. Katz and David J. Marshall published an article in Law360 on August 6, 2015, entitled “The Senate ‘Makes Good’ on Congress’ Antitrust Promises.”  This article discusses the Senate’s passage of the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act, a proposed amendment to the Antitrust Criminal Penalty Enhancement and Reform Act.  Following a 2011 recommendation from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act would ensure that innocent parties suspicious of antitrust wrongdoing would be protected from retaliation, whether they report the suspicion internally or to the Department of Labor.  The bi-partisan amendment, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and co-sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt), allows those retaliated against for engaging in protected activity to seek redress for retaliation such as discrimination, termination, demotion, suspension, and harassment.  Modeled on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the amendment would also allow for a “kick-out” provision to file in federal court if the secretary of labor fails to issue a decision within 180 days of filing.  As this proposed Act simply renders existing antitrust policies more tenable, approval from the House would bode well for potential whistleblowers as well as all concerned with antitrust violations.  According to Debra S. Katz, one of the article’s authors, “The next step is to open the way to even more effective enlistment of insiders by offering financial incentives to those who come forward and assist in enforcement of antitrust laws.  The SEC whistleblower program has been tremendously effective in encouraging individuals to report violations of securities laws.  The same types of financial incentives should be offered to insiders who report anti-trust violations to appropriate governmental authorities and regulators.&rdquo

  • SOX Whistleblower Scores Victory Before the Fifth Circuit

    On July 31, 2015, a three-judge panel with the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit partially reversed a lower court’s decision dismissing a retaliation claim filed under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”) against Tesoro Corporation, a petroleum products refiner and marketer. Kevin Wallace, a former vice president of Tesoro, filed a SOX complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) of the Department of Labor alleging that the Company engaged in unlawful activity with respect to its accounting practices, booking taxes as revenues on certain financial forms, including the company’s Forms 10-K and 10-Q filings.  Wallace alleged that this accounting practice caused some areas of the company to appear more profitable than they in fact were.  Wallace also alleged that the company engaged in other unlawful activity, including violations of antitrust laws and wire fraud by providing some customers advance notice of price changes and by giving after-the-fact discounts to certain customers. Wallace alleged that he began investigating and making internal reports about possible SOX violations when he noted a seeming disparity between the company’s cash performance and its financial prognostications, leading him to discover the tax-as-revenue distortion.  He alleged that he was terminated in March 2010, in retaliation for this protected activity.  After OSHA dismissed the complaint, but before the Department of Labor’s Administrative Review Board issued a decision within 180 days of his filing of the case, Wallace availed himself of SOX’s “kick out” provision and filed suit in the United Stated District Court for the Western District of Texas. In dismissing the Complaint for failure to state a claim, the district court held that his complaints were “outside the scope of the OSHA complaint or any investigation it would reasonably prompt.”  In reversing the District Court’s decision, the Fifth Circuit concluded that the issue Wallace raised -- about the tax-as-revenue distortion -- constituted protected activity under SOX.  The Appeals court also held that the District Court had committed legal error in finding that Wallace had not pled an objectively reasonable belief of a SOX violation.  Rejecting Tesoro’s argument that Wallace could not have reasonably believed that the booking of taxes as revenue was fraud or violated SEC rules, the Court of Appeals concluded that Wallace had plausibly alleged that he reasonably believed his investigation and reporting of tax-accounting practices were not properly disclosed on the SEC forms. With the trial court’s decision reversed, Wallace may now continue his attempt to seek redress for his retaliation claim against Tesoro.

  • SEC Pushes for Amicus Brief to Clarify Dodd-Frank Internal Whistleblower Protection

    In an unusual request to a trial court, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission moved a California federal court on August 7th, 2015, to allow the commission to file an amicus brief on behalf of Sanford Wadler, previously in-house counsel for Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., who is suing his former employer for retaliation in violation of the Dodd-Frank Act.  Wadler alleges he was fired for reporting suspicion of foreign bribery to Bio-Rad.  In the proposed amicus brief, the SEC  would ask the court to adopt its position that the Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower protections extend to internal reporting, and not just to employees who report suspected securities violations (including foreign bribes) to the SEC. The SEC’s move in the Wadler case follows its issuance of an interpretive guidance on August 4, 2015, which made clear the commission’s position on the protection of internal reporting.  Noting that the relevant provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act are ambiguous, the SEC has filed amicus briefs in a number of federal appeals courts arguing that the ambiguity can be resolved consistent with Congressional intent only by granting protection to internal whistleblowers.  Most courts have agreed, but several others, most notably the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in the Asadi case, have held that the Dodd-Frank protections cover only those employees who actually report to the SEC and not those who report to their employers. The California federal court’s ruling on this question will likely determine whether Wadler’s case against Bio-Rad can proceed.  In 2014, the company paid $55 million to settle the federal government’s allegations that it had violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and it was in part this record that led Wadler to investigate what he suspected were other such violations.  After Bio-Rad terminated his employment, Wadler filed suit in May 2015, claiming Bio-Rad had fired him for reporting internally that the company was bribing Chinese officials.   Bio-Rad has filed a motion to dismiss Wadler’s case on the grounds that the Dodd-Frank Act protects only employees who report their concerns to the SEC, which Wadler did not.  The SEC hopes that its amicus brief and its analysis of the statutory language aid the court in understanding that Bio-Rad’s (and the Fifth Circuit’s) interpretation of the law makes no sense, as it would undermine the emphasis on encouraging the internal reporting that is a cornerstone of the SEC Whistleblower Program that and the related protections for employees. In last week’s interpretive guidance and in its bid to influence the outcome of a motion to dismiss pending in a federal trial court, the SEC continues to stand up for the rights of employee-whistleblowers.  “The determination that the SEC is showing on this issues gives the commission a lot of credibility in the eyes of would-be whistleblowers,” said KMB partner David J. Marshall, who specializes in the representation of individuals before the SEC Whistleblower Program.  “The law remains unsettled, but knowing that the SEC supports them in the workplace can be a very encouraging factor in the decision of an employee to oppose their employer’s violations of U.S. securities laws.  Making sure these insiders are free to speak their minds to the boss is an important protection for the investing public, and is crucial to corporate accountability.&rdquo

  • OSHA Orders Reinstatement and Financial Compensation of Train Conductor Following Whistleblower Retaliation

    A recent federal investigation found that Burlington Northern Santa Fe, North America’s second-largest freight railroad, retaliated against a train conductor for reporting a knee injury. The rail operator has, as a result, been ordered to reinstate the employee and pay him $536,063 in back pay, damages, and attorney’s fees. The train conductor, injured en route from Vancouver to Pasco in November 2010, filed a Federal Railroad Safety Act anti-discrimination complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the U.S. Department of Labor in February 2011. Following the injury report, BNSF filed disciplinary charges against the employee and subsequently terminated him. This was done despite knowledge that his injury report was protected by law. Following an investigation, OSHA determined that the rail operator had violated federal laws protecting whistleblowers. The agency ordered financial compensation and reinstatement, as well as the expungement of the employee’s record of all charges and disciplinary action following reinstatement. The rail company is now also required to conduct trainings for managers and supervisors on employee whistleblower rights and post a notice informing employees of their whistleblower rights. “Disciplining an employee for reporting an injury is illegal,” said the regional administrator for OSHA’s Seattle office, Ken Atha. “Those who do so face negative repercussions. Retaliatory actions can discourage other workers from speaking up, which may result in an unsafe work environment.” OSHA oversees the enforcement of the whistleblower provisions of the FRSA as well as 21 other statutes protecting whistleblowers who report violations of various laws. &nbs

  • Labor Department Finds Railroad Worker’s Reports of Workplace Threats Constituted Protected Activity Under FRSA

    Railroad whistleblowers received some encouraging news this summer following a decision by the Administrative Review Board (ARB) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in the case of Leiva v. Union Pacific Railroad Co., Inc., ARB Nos. 14-016, -017, ALJ No. 2013-FRS-19 (ARB May 29, 2015).  The case involved allegations brought by Daniel Leiva, an engineer for Union Pacific Railroad in Texas.  At the conclusion of a trip in July 2012, Mr. Leiva was involved in a verbal altercation with a train conductor who yelled at Mr. Leiva using profanity and repeatedly pointed his finger at Mr. Leiva’s face.  Mr. Leiva felt intimidated and withdrew from the situation and reported the conductor’s actions.  These reports ultimately resulted in suspensions without pay for both employees.  Mr. Leiva’s supervisor conceded that had Mr. Leiva withdrawn his complaint, no such suspension would have been handed down.  Mr. Leiva filed a complaint with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) alleging that his suspension constituted a violation of the Federal Railroad Safety Act (FRSA), which protects railroad workers from retaliation for reporting certain workplace safety issues.  OSHA dismissed Mr. Leiva’s claims, and he appealed to a DOL administrative law judge (ALJ).  The ALJ found that Union Pacific had violated the FRSA and ordered it to pay Mr. Leiva back pay, expenses, and other damages and to expunge all disciplinary references relating to Leiva’s suspension from his personnel record.  Union Pacific appealed to the ARB. The ARB upheld the ALJ’s ruling in favor of Mr. Leiva.  The ARB found that Mr. Leiva’s report of workplace violence constituted protected activity under FRSA for two reasons.  First, Mr. Leiva offered evidence demonstrating that he had been trained that: (a) workplace violence was a violation of Union Pacific rules; and (b) following Union Pacific rules would keep him compliant with federal regulations.  Mr. Leiva asserted that he therefore believed in good faith that the threatening behavior constituted a violation of the FRSA.  The ARB deferred to the ALJ’s determination that Mr. Leiva’s assertion was credible and, accordingly, found that his report of the threatening behavior constituted protected activity.  Second, the ARB upheld the ALJ’s determination that Mr. Leiva’s reporting constituted a report of a “hazardous safety or security condition” because: (a) Mr. Leiva felt threatened by the conductor; (b) Mr. Leiva was therefore unable to adequately communicate with the conductor; and (c) communication between an engineer and a conductor is essential to the safe operation of a train.  Accordingly, the threats created a hazardous safety or security condition, and the ARB found that Mr. Leiva’s reports of that hazardous safety condition were protected under the FRSA.&nbs

  • Jury Awards Railroad Whistleblower $1.25 Million

    A federal jury unanimously awarded $1.25 million to a railroad whistleblower, who was able to demonstrate that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) had wrongfully terminated him after he filed a complaint regarding safety violations. BNSF locomotive engineer Michael Elliot found that overgrown vegetation was blocking the signal system along the BNSF-owned tracks between Tacoma and Vancouver, in addition to several other potentially disastrous signal malfunctions. According to the lawsuit, BNSF was slow to take corrective action. Consequently, in January 2011, after receiving no response, Elliot took his complaints to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). The FRA subsequently performed a six-week inspection, during which the agency found more than 375 violations, including one that resulted in a $1000 fine. Evidence presented at the trial demonstrates that BNSF officials made a concerted effort to set Elliot up for termination. One BNSF official, supervisor Dennis Kautzmann, was accused of planning a confrontation in the parking lot with Elliott. Kautzmann jumped onto the hood of Elliot’s car as Elliot was leaving, and an altercation ensued. According to court documents, this incident was used as a pretext to fire Elliot and have him charged with assault. A criminal court later dismissed the charges against Elliot. BNSF officials later claimed that, while this parking lot incident was under internal review, they discovered Elliot’s alleged failure to report his earlier felony conviction for driving under the influence and vehicle assault. Officials at BNSF used this pretext to terminate Elliot for a second time. Court documents, however, indicate that Elliott had informed them of this conviction and that BNSF supervisors intentionally provided the mediator with false information. As a result of the wrongful actions taken by the railroad company, Elliot was awarded $1 million in damages, including back pay, lost future pay, and $250,000 in punitive damages. Upon notice of this favorable outcome, Elliot was reportedly, and understandably, “ecstatic.&rdquo
