Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a diversity action under a state whistleblower statute, district court's grant of summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff did not make a good faith report of a violation or suspected violation of the law, as she did not believe the commission practice was illegal when she reported it, and thus her conduct is not statutorily protected; and 2) plaintiff's common law claim for wrongful discharge in violation of public policy fails as she did not form her belief that the practice was illegal until after she reported it.
