Jordan A. Thomas lauds Supreme Court ruling that extends whistleblower protections beyond employees of publicly traded companies

Jordan Thomas, a New York-based lawyer at Labaton Sucharow who represents whistleblowers, said the ruling "sends the clear message to potential whistleblowers that they will be protected from retaliation for wrongdoing regardless of their legal relationship to a public company."

The case is Lawson v. FMR, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 12-3.
