PHILADELPHIA – A New Jersey man alleges he was wrongfully terminated for engaging in protected activities.
Anthony A. Lombardi filed a complaint on Nov. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Macquarie Investment Management Business Trust, Macquarie Investment Management, Macquarie Group Limited and D. Tysen Nutt Jr. citing the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was hired by the defendants' predecessor in interest in 2004. He alleges that he was not paid a bonus and that he was terminated from his employment for providing information regarding a violation of defendants' reporting obligations under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The suit states he was terminated in March 2016.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly retaliated against him because he took an action protected by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that the defendants have violated the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, enjoin the defendants, award lost wages and benefits to the plaintiff, reinstatement, compensatory and special damages, all other damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Stephen G. Console and Katherine C. Oeltjen of Console Mattiacci Law LLC in Philadelphia.
