And for an Example of a Happy Whistleblower
by Michael Fox
You could check out Sarah Schmidt, whose 14 year challenge against Rockland County Community College, resulted in $1.35 million jury verdict last week. The Journal News has the story. Schmidt claimed she was terminated when she complained about the misuse of federal funds in the college's Judaic studies program. The college which had apparently spent $320,000 in fees for its own counsel, not counting the time spent in trial, marches forward since its view that the claim was 'baseless' had not changed.
