    eAlert - Don't be a Bieber: How a Bad Attitude or Poor Preparation for a Deposition Can Destroy Your Case

    Recently, several clips from 20 year old pop-star Justin Bieber's video deposition made their way around the Internet. To say the least, he did not help his public image or his case. While it's easy to dismiss his behavior as immature, poor conduct during a deposition by any key witness, whether CEO, expert or simply a witness to events, often undermines otherwise winnable cases or destroys the credibility or reputation of the deponent. To be effective, a witness in a deposition, no matter how experienced, must exercise humility, act professionally, rely on thorough preparation and avoid the temptation to tell the deposing lawyer "everything" they think the opposing counsel needs to know.

    eAlert - Supreme Court Gives Voice to Private Company Whistleblowers

    In a decision giving private company employers cause to reassess their employee policies and protocols, on March 4, 2014 the U.S. Supreme Court issued a split decision in Lawson v. FMR LLC that broadens the potential universe of individuals able to bring a whistleblower retaliation claim under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to individuals employed by privately held companies. In Lawson, the whistleblower plaintiffs worked for privately held (as opposed to publicly held) companies that served as advisers to public mutual funds. In a divided and split decision, the Supreme Court ruled that both the legislative intent and the plain language of §806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (18 U.S.C. §1514A) suggests a broad interpretation and protects employees who work for private company contractors and subcontractors of public companies from retaliation for "whistleblowing" activities. The Lawson decision underscores the need for both public and private companies to craft and document an appropriate plan of internal controls and related strategies for responding to whistleblowing complaints.
