Bishop v. Wells Fargo & Co., et al. | Score One for the Bank Whistle-Blowers

NYT-

Here is something to celebrate: The United States Supreme Court just handed whistle-blowers one of their bigger wins in a long time.

People who expose wrongdoing in the workplace or among government contractors have taken a beating in recent years. The Obama Administration was especially assiduous in its pursuit of whistle-blowers, and President Trump has also singled them out for scorn.

So it was gratifying to see the Feb. 21 ruling from the nation’s top court on an important bank whistle-blower case dating back to the financial crisis. In its opinion, which vacated two lower courts’ dismissals of the case, the Supreme Court essentially confirmed that some courts have been using too narrow a legal standard when weighing whistle-blower suits under the False Claims Act, which is meant to punish those who defraud the government.

By highlighting a more expansive standard for what constitutes a false claim under …

    Charlotte Observer sent me the link to the summary remand decision:

    https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/022117zor_o759.pdf

    It appears at the top of page.

    Paul Bishop’s California 2008 lawsuit, which was an exhibit to my 2008 federal complaint, was dismissed, likely due to the inherent corruption of courts here in California, as they have been bending over backwards for “Wells Fargo Drug Cartel” since 2008, when the FEDS engineered the world’s largest ever drug trafficking, and drug money laundering, operations among “World Savings Bank”, “Wachovia Drug Cartel”, and into “Wells Fargo Drug Cartel”, only half a trillion dollars of which was disclosed to the Florida court which blessed the history’s biggest drug cartel by dismissing the case without criminal convictions, and without mandatory forfeiture of all the drug money, which had already been laundered into “Wells Fargo Drug Cartel with national banking charter #1”.

    A summary report of the drug transactions is in this report:

    In a previous comment on this website, I had linked to SEC files showing SEC approval of “Wells Fargo Drug Cartel” lawyers routinely bribing California Judges in foreclosure cases, not to mention the fact that their gangster lawyers have been also paid with drug money.

    Thanks Mr. Dubin for posting this comment

    The Supreme Court remanded the above Paul Bishop case based on its recent decision below:

    Universal Health Servs., Inc. v. United States, 136 S. Ct. 1989, 1989–2004, 195 L. Ed. 2d 348 (2016)

    This case includes lots of useful citations to other cases, for many types of cases, not just for False Claims Acts cases.
