Coppinger-Martin v. Solis, No. 09-73725

By FindLaw Staff on November 30, 2010 1:04 PM

In Coppinger-Martin v. Solis, No. 09-73725, an action alleging that Nordstrom, Inc. violated the whistleblower-protection provision of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, by terminating petitioner's employment in retaliation for her reporting to supervisors conduct she believed violated the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the court affirmed the Department of Labor's Administrative Review Board's order dismissing petitioner's complaint as untimely filed where petitioner filed her complaint on October 13, 2006, more than 90 days after her final day of work, and equitable tolling did not apply.

 

As the court wrote:  "Carole Coppinger-Martin alleges that Nordstrom, Inc. violated the whistleblower-protection provision of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), 18 U.S.C. § 1514A, by terminating her employment in retaliation for her reporting to supervisors conduct she believed violated the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). She petitions for review of the final order of the United States Department of Labor's Administrative Review Board (ARB) that dismissed her complaint as untimely filed."
