2016 was a banner year for the SEC and Department of Justice. The SEC paid out record whistleblower awards. The Department of Justice had its third best year under the False Claims Act.

Here is a case that would scare any would-be whistleblowers. A federal appeals court in Denver ordered a whistleblower to pay $15 million to the alleged wrongdoers.

Jack Grynberg is a serial whistleblower.

The days of the billion dollar mortgage underwriting fraud may be over. That hasn’t stopped lenders from running afoul of the False Claims Act, however. 2016 was the third best year ever for the Justice Department in terms of whistleblower lawsuit recoveries.
