Case Studies

The SEC is expected to announce their first batch of whistleblower awards in 2012.

The SEC posts Notices of Covered Action where a final judgment or order results in monetary sanctions exceeding $1 million.  The inclusion of a Notice means only that an order was entered with monetary sanctions exceeding $1 million. Posting a Notice for a particular case does not necessarily mean that the SEC has made a determinations that a whistleblower tip, complaint or referral led to the Commission opening an investigation or filing an action with respect to the case, or that an award to a whistleblower will be paid in connection with the case..
