SOX victory for The Boeing Company

September 17, 2010

An administrative law judge recently dismissed a Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower complaint filed against McGuireWoods' client The Boeing Company, the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. The judge held that the filing was untimely and the complainant was not entitled to equitable tolling. In a matter of first impression, the judge held that the tolling period started when a letter was delivered to the complainant's private mailbox company, not when the complainant picked the letter up from the mailbox company.
