I guess that we have all wanted to see that there was going to be some sense and reality evolve from this chaotic mess. If this ruling is the evidence of the turning tide then I'm all in favor!
Bank of America Whistleblower Entitled to Job Back, $1 Million in Damage
The Countrywide employee that exposed massive fraud behind the company’s mortgage lending practices who was fired shortly after Bank of America purchased the lender has her job back and will receive approximately $930,000 in back wages, interest, compensatory damages and attorney fees. OSHA assistant secretary David Michaels commended the employee for “great courage” in his comments on the ruling. Bank of America and the complainant have 30 days to appeal the monetary damages.
Bank of America has steadfastly maintained that the firing had nothing to do with the fraud investigation, which eventually uncovered evidence of wire, mail and bank fraud.
