Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Air Marshal

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the below statement on news that the U.S. Supreme Court today ruled in favor of a former air marshal whistleblower:

I'm pleased that the Supreme Court maintained the whistleblower protection Congress intended under the Homeland Security Act. The 240,000 employees of the Department of Homeland Security need to know that their employee rights are protected if they come forward with information about security vulnerabilities, waste, fraud or abuse.
