BlueLinx Ruling Listed Among Law360’s "Top Ten Whistleblower and Retaliation Developments of 2013"

Alston & Bird’s work on behalf of BlueLinx Holdings in Pruett v. BlueLinx Holdings Inc., specifically regarding a matter of first impression in which the Northern District of Georgia concluded that Dodd-Frank whistleblowers are not entitled to a jury trial or punitive damages, was listed among the “Top Ten Whistleblower and Retaliation Developments of 2013.” The ruling and its significance is described in detail in the Alston & Bird Labor & Employment Advisory “District Court Finds No Right to Jury Trial for Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Retaliation Plaintiffs.”

The Law360 year-end piece noted that the decision “is likely to have a meaningful impact in favor of employers” and that “employers can expect traction in relying on this decision in negotiating settlements.”
