Emphasizing what my procedure professor said, "there's no cash register at the back of the court room," the judge who presided over the whistleblower claim of Thomas Dunn against Enterprise Rent A Car yesterday set aside the jury's verdict and entered judgment for Enterprise. According to the story in the St. Louis Post Dispatch the judge set aside the verdict because the plaintiff had not shown Enterprise violated any statutory prohibition. Plaintiff's counsel argued it only requires a good faith belief on the part of the employee to state a cause of action. Plaintiff will apparently get their chance to press that argument on appeal.
