John Costin v. Dept. of Health and Human Services
In mid November the US Merit Systems Protection Board Issued a decision in the case of John T. Costin v. Department of Health and Human Services in which it found that Mr. Costin had been deprived of a promotion because of whistle blowing activities.
Mr. Costin operated an incinerator at the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention when he reported to the press that laboratory waste was not being fully destroyed. In late December I filed a Motion for Attorneys Fees. seeking recovery of the fees incurred in the representation of Mr. Costin.
