Fahlen v. Sutter: Cal. Supreme Court Grants Review in Whistleblower Action

The California Supreme Court on November 14 granted review in Fahlen v. Sutter Central Valley Hospitals (8/14/12) (discussed here), in which the Court of Appeal held that a doctor claiming he lost his hospital privileges as a form of whistleblower retaliation need not exhaust his judicial remedy of pursuing review, via writ of mandate, of the hospital's action before he can file a whistleblower lawsuit under California Health and Safety Code section 1278.5. 

The Court web page for Fahlen is here.  The Court has not yet formally stated the issues on review.  I have added the case to our Watch List of Pending Cases.
