Michael J Daugherty

    While the FTC, FCC and Homeland Security joust over who is going to regulate the internet, Michael J. Daugherty, will rivet you regarding his blood in the water battle with the Federal Trade Commission over their relentless investigation into his LabMD’s data security practices. It’s human nature to root for the underdog, but in real life, the little guy tends to lose big fights. Daugherty is flipping that paradigm on its head.

    This is an insider’s look at how agencies exploit their power by bullying the small and weak to control the private sector. It’s their playbook.

    You will hear about Mike’s shrewd investigation of the investigator (FTC), which, after publication, resulted in a House Oversight investigation, a stinging Congressional report about the FTC’s behavior, and criminal immunity from the Justice Department for a whistleblower. Chairman Issa released his bombshell report May 12, 2015. Mike then scored a stunning victory over the government in November, 2015. In August, 2016, the agency overturned, and in November, 2016, 11th Circuit Court of Appeals stayed the case to hear an appeal, making this case destined for the Supreme Court. Learn how Mike exposed real time maneuvers of government lawyers who are accustomed to no one looking. Oral argument was scheduled for June 21, 2017.

    Because of his work, Mike has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives House Oversight Committee and regularly keynotes in front of healthcare, law, business and technology audiences educating them on what to expect when the Federal Government investigates you.
