Abstract

This paper argues that the reason so few whistleblowers have won in court is because counsel failed to focus on SEC rule violations. It lays out a strategy for reversing that trend by identifying 13 SEC rules that could be cited by environmental whistleblowers under SOx §806 and its Dodd-Frank cousin.
