A Law360 article titled Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Debate May Be High Court Bound quotes DC whistleblower lawyer Jason Zuckerman about interpretive guidance that the SEC issued earlier this week about the scope of Dodd-Frank whistleblower protection.
The article quotes Zuckerman’s analysis of recent federal court ruling and SEC guidance concerning Dodd-Frank’s anti-retaliation provision:
- “I think it is very likely that we will soon see a circuit split on this issue and that the issue will go before the Supreme Court,” said Zuckerman Law’s Jason Zuckerman, who represents whistleblowers.
- “I think it will be very helpful to corporate whistleblowers because courts are likely to defer to the SEC’s interpretation of the scope of the anti-retaliation provisions under the Dodd-Frank Act where there’s ambiguity,” Zuckerman said. “It’s a lot more persuasive to have actual SEC interpretive guidance.”
- “I believe the Supreme Court will agree with the SEC’s broad construction of the anti-retaliation provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act,” Zuckerman said.
