The weekend lull in blogging activity continues today, as writers from around the LexBlogosphere take that well-deserved Sunday break. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to report. From whistleblowers to film critics, the discussion today – despite being more limited than usual – continues to highlight diverse offerings from around the virtual table.
Some selections for today, August 26:
- Whistleblowers – just a few years ago hailed as heroes by American media – are treated much differently today. In Iraq, reports Jeffrey Mehalic at the West Virginia Business Litigation Blog, those who report fraud and corruption among their superiors are being punished for speaking out.
- Retirement expert Jerry Kalish at the Retirement Plan Blog points out that it isn’t just defined benefit plans that large employers across the country are terminating – it’s ESOP’s as well.
- The “thumbs up/thumbs down” rating system that made film critic Ebert Roeper a television celebrity may soon be gone from TV screens everywhere, says DLA Piper attorney David Donoghue at the Chicago IP Litigation Blog.
