Sandra Kuba, a senior financial analyst who has been with The Walt Disney Co. for nearly two decades, reported billions of dollars of alleged financial irregularities, and accused the financial arm of the publicly-traded entity of harassment and retaliation after she spoke out.
And now attorney James Sallah, partner at Sallah, Astarita & Cox in Boca Raton and former senior counsel in the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission in Miami, said if Kuba’s allegations are true, the whistleblower complaint effectively laid out a blueprint to bring these types of cases to court.
James Sallah of Sallah Astarita & Cox, said if true, the allegations in the complaint, specifically of accounting fraud and deficiency of internal controls, could be the basis of federal securities law violations if they made their way into public documents and are known internally to be inaccurate.
