Glen Savits was interviewed in connection with an article published on June 24, 2015 by the New Jersey Law Journal entitled "Whistleblower Ruling Draws Fire From Employment Bar." This article discusses the New Jersey Supreme Court's decision in State v. Saavedra, where the justices ruled 6-1 to uphold an Appellate Division decision that defendant Ivonne Saavedra could be prosecuted for theft and official misconduct for taking documents from her former employer, against which she had filed a lawsuit alleging that she was the victim of gender, sexual and ethnic discrimination.The high court said its 2010 decision in Quinlan v. Curtiss-Wright—which held that, under certain circumstances, employers could not fire employees for taking confidential documents—had no bearing on whether criminal charges could be brought for such conduct. Mr. Savits called it "a terrible decision" when interviewed by the Law Journal. "Clearly this will create a chilling effect on potential whistleblowers if they feel that, 'Gee, if I copy certain documents, I'm going to be prosecuted criminally.' . . . It's something I think management attorneys are going to love because [employers] can tell people, 'If you take anything you can be prosecuted.'"
