ALJ rules for whistleblower against Southwest Virginia bank under Sarbanes-Oxley

The Roanoke Times reports here ("Judge rules act protects whistle-blower," 1/31/2004) on the ruling in favor of a whistleblowing employee and against the Bank of Floyd on a claim brought before the Department of Labor under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The case is "said to offer the first decision related to whistle-blower protections promised by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act."

Bruce Shine of Kingsport represented the employee, Laura Effel of Flippen Densmore represented the bank.
