WASHINGTON, D.C. | November 2, 2023 — On November 1, Siri Nelson, Executive Director of National Whistleblower Center (NWC) was sworn in as a member of the Supreme Court Bar. Nelson is now able to argue before the Supreme Court as well as to file amicus curiae briefs.
“It is an incredible honor to be sworn in before the Supreme Court,” says Nelson. “Working on Constitutional issues has been on my agenda since I initially decided to pursue a career in the law and I look forward to advocating for whistleblower rights before the highest court in the land.”
“I am incredibly proud of Siri. This is not only a huge step for her career but also for NWC,” says NWC Chairman of the Board Stephen M. Kohn, who is also a member of the Supreme Court Bar. “Siri has been a tireless advocate for whistleblowers for years and whistleblowers are in great hands with her on their side.”
Over the years, NWC has filed a number of amicus briefs before the Supreme Court in precedent-setting whistleblower cases. These briefs have touched on important aspects of federal whistleblower laws including the False Claims Act, Dodd-Frank Act, and Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
“Filing amicus briefs before the Supreme Court is a key way that NWC engages in advancing whistleblower rights,” says Nelson. “I am excited to further our work in this hugely consequential area.”
