On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, Senator Charles Grassley and the Securities and Exchange Commission joined the National Whistleblower Center in supporting the whistleblower in Digital Realty Trust v. Somers (No. 16-1276) by filing amicus briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court.

In Somers, the fates of corporate whistleblowers and compliance programs are on the line as the Court determines whether whistleblowers who report potential violations to company management but not to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), are protected from retaliation under the Dodd-Frank Act (DFA).
