Barbara Newman filed complaints with OSHA and the Securities Exchange Commission, in June and July of 2008, against Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Lehman Brothers Inc., their subsidiary, Neuberger Berman and an agent of the employer, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. Newman’s complaints alleged she was harassed and fired for blowing the whistle on the pre-bankruptcy conduct of the companies. Lehman Brothers Holdings and Lehman Brothers Inc. declared bankruptcy under both Chapter 11 and SIPA prior to any outcome. Neuberger Berman is a non-debtor subsidiary. Newman is awaiting a decision from the First Circuit of Appeals relating to a procedural issue of Ms. Newman’s SOX Whistleblower Retaliation case.
