Former Motorola CFO a WHSTL BLWR

whistleblowerjpgMotorola’s dismissal of former CFO Paul Liska grows more intriguing by the day. Turns out that Liska has indeed filed suit against his former employer, but not for “wrongful dismissal.” He’s suing for “retaliatory discharge.”

In other words, Liska has filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Motorola (MOT). He’s claiming he lost his job for doing something in the public interest.

On what basis he’s making that claim is not yet clear, and the lawsuit is sealed, so there’s nothing to be learned from court documents. Still, a curious turn of events in an already curious situation. And bad news for Motorola. An accusation of retaliatory discharge made by a former CFO doesn’t exactly cast the company in a good light.
