The Ninth Circuit held that post-judgment interest rate in a Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower case is determined by 28 U.S.C. § 1961, which determines the rate that applies to all civil cases in federal district courts. Asdale v. Int’l Game Tech., No. 11-16538 (9th Cir. Aug. 15, 2014).  The district court had awarded prejudgment interest pursuant to 26 U.S.C. § 6621, which applies to the underpayment of federal taxes.  The court held that the higher interest rate under § 6621 does not apply to post-judgment interest, and rejected appellees’ argument that the interest rate set forth in §6621 must apply to all cases commenced before the Department of Labor.
