Digital Realty Dodd-Frank and In re Hyundai & Kia Settlement Updates

March 20, 2018

Here are two recent bulletins I wrote for my firm. The U.S. Supreme Court held in the Digital Realty case that corporate whistleblowers must report to the SEC and not just internally to benefit from Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower rules. In the Hyundai & Kia case, the Ninth Circuit applied a heightened standard for certification of a settlement class, arguably making settlement of class actions more challenging.
