  • A former Playboy Controller has filed a lawsuit in California state court alleging that she was fired for exposing . . . possible corporate wrongdoing.  Catherine Zulfer claims that the company retaliated against her, in violation of the whistleblower provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and California law, when she revealed to the company’s general and outside counsel her suspicions that the CEO and CFO were attempting to pay themselves bonuses – by accruing for them on the company’s books – without the board’s approval.
