Demoted Prosecutor Recovers Damages in Whistleblower Lawsuit

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) announced yesterday the settlement of a whistleblower claim brought by a former Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) against the former U.S. Attorney for Minnesota in which the AUSA will receive back pay, compensatory damages, and a cleared record. 

In 2007, the AUSA blew the whistle on the U.S. Attorney failing to maintain classified Department of Homeland Security reports on terrorist activity and likely targets in a secure location.  Immediately after he reported the violation, the AUSA was demoted to a staff attorney position and warned that he would be soon terminated. The AUSA resigned to avoid being terminated.   The OSC concluded that the U.S. Attorney constructively terminated the AUSA in retaliation for his protected disclosures
