Employment Partner Discusses Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Ruling

Law360 | September.27.2012

This article, about the impact of the first decision allowing a Dodd-Frank Act retaliation claim to survive a motion to dismiss, quotes New York employment law partner Jill Rosenberg.

"This decision gives plaintiffs and plaintiffs' counsel more comfort in bringing direct actions in court under Dodd-Frank for conduct that does not involve reporting to the SEC but involves essentially garden-variety Sarbanes-Oxley claims," Jill Rosenberg said. "At least in the short term, we can expect more claims in this area to be brought directly in court."
