Wells Fargo opposed on whistleblowing suit

Wells Fargo Building

The U.S. Justice Department filed a friend-of-the-court brief on Tuesday in a lawsuit brought against Wells Fargo by two former employees, who were fired after they reported misdemeanors they had noticed to their supervisors.

Reuters reports that the DOJ's filing concluded that the appellate court, which had earlier dismissed the case, should revisit and modify its analysis.

The plaintiffs, Paul Bishop and Robert Kraus, had said the Wall Street bank had requested Federal Reserve loans on various occasions when it was in violation of certain banking regulations, in a complaint filed in 2011.
