Law360 Quotes Nicholas Woodfield on First-of-Its-Kind Ruling in Whistleblower Protection Case under Dodd-Frank

Law360 recently reported in its lead article on Kramer v. Trans-Lux Corp. , the first court decision allowing a Dodd-Frank Act retaliation suit to survive a motion to dismiss.  In the article, Law360 quoted Nicholas Woodfield, principal at The Employment Law Group® law firm and attorney for Richard Kramer, the whistleblower who brought the lawsuit.

Mr. Kramer, a former executive for Trans-Lux, was fired after reporting to the company’s board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission that his supervisors has run afoul of the company’s pension plan.

Trans-lux had argued that Kramer was not a whistleblower as defined in the Dodd-Frank law.  The court, however found that Kramer was protected by against retaliation as a whistleblower and that “Trans-lux’s interpretation would dramatically narrow the available protections to potential whistleblowers.”

Kramer’s attorney, Mr. Woodfield told Law360 that he is “pleased” with the decision and that he regards it as “a fair decision that accurately reflects the goals of the legislators in implementing Dodd-Frank.”  Woodfield also noted that “whether Mr. Kramer will prevail at trial is another issue, but [the decision] fairly recognizes that it was the intent of Congress to protect [whistleblowers] like him.”

The article, “Judge Backs Broad Whistleblower Definition Under Dodd-Frank” appeared in the September 26, 2012 edition of Law360.

The Employment Law Group® law firm has an extensive nationwide whistleblower practice representing employees who have been victims of retaliation.
