MIAMI – The Daily Business Review reported on Rivero Mestre’s representation of Carlos Loumiet in his suit against the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency:
Loumiet, a partner at DLA Piper in Miami, is seeking $4 million in damages. The suit was filed in July in Washington federal court. The suit also named OCC investigators Michael Rardin, Lee Straus, Gerard Sexton and Ronald Schneck.
“It’s outrageous the way the OCC chased Carlos Loumiet,” said his attorney, Andres Rivero of Rivero Mestre in Coral Gables. “We are going to prove they violated his constitutional rights. They tried to punish him because he blew the whistle on them. They’ve done whatever they can to damage his career.”
