The subject of several posts today, whistleblowers occupy an interesting position in society.  On the one hand, famous whistleblowers like Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo (responsible for leaking the Pentagon Papers to the NYTimes) are often portrayed as heroes; standing up against corruption and misconduct in the face of adversity.  On the other hand, as Steven Berk articulated in his post today, whistleblowers face ridicule, unemployment, and a convoluted legal system.  Today marked a detraction from the norm, as Lindsey Williams reported the SEC dispensed it’s first whistleblower reward of $50,000 as a part of the new Whistleblower Program. Those posts and more make up today’s Top 10 in Law Blogs.
