DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

A Washington, D.C. jury awarded TELG client Colin Browne over $282,000 for violations of the D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act.

Summary of Filed Complaint

TELG client Colin Browne was terminated for reporting that the former Director of UDC’s at-risk program, and his supervisors were intentionally misreporting the retention rate of UDC’s program for at-risk students.  The program received federal funding.

What Happened in Court

A jury in the District of Columbia decided in favor of D.C. Whistleblower Colin Browne.  In the suit, Mr. Browne alleged that his former employer, the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) violated the D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) when it retaliated against him for raising concerns that Kevin Naiker, the former Director of UDC’s at-risk program, and his supervisors were intentionally misreporting the retention rate of UDC’s program for at-risk students.  Browne also discovered that Naiker was unlicensed and did not have a doctorate even though he represented to Browne and others that he was licensed, possessed a doctorate, and would supervise Browne for his licensure.
