Federal Circuit Holds that Whistleblower Protection Act Plaintiff Need Not Prove Actual Violation of Law
We reiterate, however, that “[t]he test is not whether [the petitioner] was able to prove [a violation], but rather could a disinterested observer with knowledge of the essential facts known to and readily ascertainable by [the petitioner] reasonably conclude . . . that a violation did occur.” Drake, 543 F.3d at 1382 (alterations added).
