$AKER (So did they fire the old CEO, Dr Raymond Akers, because he reported the company was doing something wrong?) From the SEC report: A former executive has threatened to sue the Company over the termination of the executive’s employment. The executive contends that the termination was in retaliation for complaints to the employer protected under the California whistleblower protection laws. The executive also contends that the Company failed to pay a bonus in violation of an employment contract. The Company’s management and legal counsel believes it is too early to determine the probable outcome of this matter.
