Professor Lofaso comments on an upcoming employment law case, Murray v. UBS Securities LLC, Docket No. 22-660, to be heard in the October 2023 term. The article is titled "Under the Sarbanes–Oxley Act, Must Whistleblower–Employees Prove Their Employer Acted With Retaliatory Intent?" Professor Lofaso's contribution appears in volume 51, issue 1 of the journal, published in September 2023.

Case at a Glance:

Petitioner Trevor Murray, a financial expert for respondent UBS Securities (UBS), was fired after he complained to his supervisor that the UBS trade desk pressured him to skew his reports in favor of UBS’s commercial mortgage-backed securities business. Murray sued UBS for violating the Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower provisions. This case presents the question of whether Murray had the burden to prove that UBS’s discharge decision was motivated by retaliatory intent.
