The issue of whistleblower protection is more important than is generally acknowledged. Our current economic troubles are in part the result of malfeasance, incompetence, and general irresponsibility within a variety of public and private institutions.

Protecting people who risk their livelihood to make such irresponsibility public is one way to strengthen institutions.

Kudos to the California Supreme Court for deciding this case in favor of enhanced whistleblower protections.

Whistle-blowers in state government received protection Thursday from the California Supreme Court in a case in which a low-level employee reported that her superior had violated a regulation she was supposed to enforce.
The state high court gave whistle-blowers who suffer retaliation the right to sue for hefty damages in court even if they lose their case before a civil service board.

Thank you Denny Walsh for bringing this to light…Thank you Supreme Court Justices for your integrity and UNANIMOUS decision…Thank you readers for your kind support…And thank you God for seeing me through this.

“RIGHT IS RIGHT, EVEN IF EVERYONE SAYS IT IS WRONG…AND WRONG IS WRONG, EVEN IF EVERYONE SAYS IT IS RIGHT.” IT HAS BEEN A LONG HARD CLIMB. THIS WAS NOT ABOUT ME..BUT THE OTHERS OUT THERE WHO HAD FEAR AND NOT THE STRENGTH TO FIGHT.

ONE QUESTION REMAINS UN ANSWERED…WILL THE ‘NEW” BORAD MEMBERS HAVE THE INTEGRITY OF THE SUPREME COURT AND…AFTER 8 YEARS…ISSUE DISCIPLINARY ACTION AGAINST THE UNLAWFUL ACT OF DR. SHARON B. UFBERG? I THINK NOT. THAT CARPET THEY HAVE BEEN SWEEPING THINGS UNDER FOR SO VERY MANY YEARS…THEY ARE NOW THEMSELVES TRIPPPING OVER.

THANK YOU AGAIN…I WILL CONTINUE THE FIGHT…FOR ALL OF YOU OUT THERE THAT HAVE THAT GNAWING IN THE PIT OF YOUR STOMACH EVERY DAY WHEN ENTERING THE WORK PLACE.

I’m writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link: http://www.kwiksurveys.com/?s=ILLLML_9669e09d. Would be great if you would encourage others to do the survey also.
