- Rockingham County attorney faces possible whistleblower lawsuit
March 11. 2015 – BRENTWOOD — Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway is facing a potential whistleblower’s lawsuit for her decision to fire a key witness in a state misconduct investigation just hours after she was sworn into office.

- Jailed Whistleblower Received Record $140-Million Award In Tax Evasion Case
September 24, 2012 – The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) awarded a record $104 million to a whistleblower for his role in helping to expose an enormous tax fraud scheme orchestrated by Swiss banking giant UBS AG. The award, the largest ever paid by the federal government to an individual whistleblower, was given to Bradley Birkenfield, a UBS AG banker who was also thrown in prison to serve a 40-month sentence as part of the same case. The IRS confirmed last week that Mr. Birkenfield will receive the record award for his part in a federal investigation that resulted in UBS being fined $780 million for helping thousands of individuals evade their tax obligations. The case also led to an agreement with UBS to release the names of nearly 5,000 Americans who stash their fortunes in secret overseas accounts and the recovery of $5 billion in back taxes and penalties.
