Everyone knows that whistleblower lawsuits can be expensive.

In the coming months, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide two cases relating to incriminating evidence—one concerns finding it, and the other concerns destroying it. In , No. 13-604, the court will decide whether the Fourth Amendment allows the introduction of evidence obtained in the course of a police officer's traffic stop that was predicated on a good-faith mistake of law. In , No. 13-7451, the court will address whether the destruction of evidence prohibited by 18 U.S.C. Section 1519 applies to a fisherman accused of catching undersized fish who allegedly destroyed the evidence of that crime—namely, the contraband fish.

Companies in every industry—private and public—struggle with the difficult task of promptly identifying employee wrongdoing and responding appropriately. The National Football League continues to be embroiled in a controversy arising from its reaction to the off-the-field conduct of its players. Penn State University continues to make attempts to repair its reputation after the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Lloyds Banking Group recently dismissed eight employees and sought to recoup millions in bonuses after it was revealed that they, along with employees of at least two other British banks, had attempted to manipulate benchmark interest rates from 2006 to 2009. Even government organizations struggle with this issue: Last month, Philadelphia Municipal Court Judge Joseph C. Waters Jr. resigned amid an investigation by the FBI that has lasted more than a year.

What constitutes constitutionally adequate notice to a debtor's unknown creditors of the deadline for filing proofs of claim? In Civ. No. 13-1719-SLR (D. Del. Aug. 19, 2014), the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware concluded that the adequacy of the notice provided to unknown creditors had not been meaningfully explored by the bankruptcy court and likely was not reasonably calculated to apprise them of the bar date.

It would be easy to overlook the U.S. Supreme Court's decision last term in , 134 S. Ct. 1710, 188 L. Ed. 2d 714 (2014). Many other cases involved hot-button issues like the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate, legislative prayer, campaign finance, recess appointments, and free speech around abortion clinics. Indeed, Paroline—a child-pornography case—went unmentioned in both Erwin Chemerinsky and Frederick Lawrence's Supreme Court Review at the National Constitution Center and Paul Clement's counterpart for the Philadelphia Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society. Such decisions seldom apply to cases outside of that uniquely awful realm.
