Former SEC investigator sues the agency for wrongful termination

David Weber, who is seeking $20 million in damages, says he was fired after voicing concerns about former SEC Inspector General David Kotz

A former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigator who was fired for allegedly threatening his colleagues has filed a multimillion-dollar wrongful termination lawsuit against the government agency.

David Weber was chief investigator in the SEC inspector general’s office until May, when he was placed on paid leave for reportedly creating a threatening work environment and expressing his desire to carry a gun while on the job. He was eventually fired on Oct. 31.
