In June, the Supreme Court announced it will consider whether the Dodd-Frank whistleblower protections extend to corporate insiders who blow the whistle on their employers by reporting the alleged misconduct internally only rather than to the SEC. The Court will hear the appeal of Digital Realty Trust Inc. arising from an opinion of the 9th Circuit that held that the whistleblower protections of Dodd-Frank applied when the company allegedly fired its former executive for reporting alleged misconduct of his supervisor internally, but not to the SEC.
