|Victory for Whistleblower Bunny Greenhouse! Thank you!|
The National Whistleblowers Center is pleased to announced the Army Corps of Engineers was forced into capitulation and ended its six-year legal battle against one of this nation's whistleblower heroes, Bunnatine "Bunny" Greenhouse. The Army Corps agreed to pay Ms. Greenhouse $970,000.00 representing full restitution for lost wages, the statutory maximum compensatory damages award and all of her legal fees. On August 22, 2011 Bunny turned 67 and will retire with her full pension benefits. See the story in today's Washington Post.
Thank you for all you did along the way to help keep pressure on an unrelenting agency. We cannot begin to tell you how important your efforts were to Bunny's case.
Unfortunately, as Bunny points out: "there are too many federal employees who are silenced for simply doing their jobs and protecting the public interest. Six years to extract justice is too long. Without the support of the NWC I would not have survived." Ms. Greenhouse hopes that the plight she "suffered prompts the Administration and Congress to move dedicated civil servants from second-class citizenry and to finally give federal employees the legal rights that they need to protect the public trust."
You can help Ms. Greenhouse accomplish her goal by TAKING ACTION and sending a letter to President Obama.
Support the NWC! You can partner with the National Whistleblowers Center to help our programs continue and expand. No matter how large or small, your contribution goes toward assuring that the rights of whistleblowers are protected.
