SeaWorld has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor, claiming an inspector with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration illegally shared confidential records with a producer of the documentary “Blackfish.”

OSHA inspector Lara Padgett’s investigation into the death of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010 led to workplace safety citations and a $12,000 fine issued to the marine park. SeaWorld is appealing those citations in federal court.

In their complaint, SeaWorld claims it has obtained evidence that Padgett disclosed confidential SeaWorld documents in violation of federal law while attending the January 2013 premier of “Blackfish” at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
