MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Federal authorities have executed search warrants at the home of a former executive of Starkey Hearing Technologies.

The Star Tribune reports (https://strib.mn/1l8KpNz ) officials with the FBI and at least one agent from the IRS removed files, a computer and a car from former company President Jerry Ruzicka’s home.

Ruzicka was among three other senior executives fired in September from the hearing aid maker known for its star-studded fundraisers. A lawsuit filed last month alleges the firings were retaliatory.

An attorney for the company told the newspaper an investigation by federal agents was ongoing to determine whether Starkey Hearing Technologies “has been the victim of criminal activity.”

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven said “multiple search warrants” were executed Wednesday but declined further comment.

Ruzicka’s attorney, Marshall Tanick, says there are no criminal charges being made against his client.
