SCOTUS To Review a Whistleblower Case for the First Time

by Sven Magnussen
In 2003, Robert MacLean disclosed proposed Transportation Security Administration operational changes that he believed would have reduced aviation security. He was fired on in 2006 and then claimed whistleblower protections

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned a MSPB ruling that upheld the termination of Robert MacLean, a former TSA air marshal, and remanded the case back to the MSPB. The federal government has appealed the unanimous U.S.C.A. for the Federal Circuit decision to the U.S. Supreme Court. Neal Katyal, Hogan Lovells U.S. LLP, Washington D.C., briefed the Supreme Court defending Robert MacLean’s rights as a whistleblower.
