California Supreme Court Issues Whistleblower Decision

Just a quick summary for this case:

In Runyon v. Board of Trustees of the California State University (May 3, 2010) --- Cal.4th ---, 2010 WL 1740907, the California Supreme Court held that a CSU employee, after exhausting his administrative remedies for whistleblower retaliation, need not bring a petition for writ of mandate as a prerequisite to suing for damages under the Whistleblower Protection Act, Cal. Gov.Code § 8547 et seq. Disapproving Ohton v. Board of Trustees of California State University (2007) 148 Cal.App.4th 749. The Court also held that CSU's adverse administrative findings did not have preclusive effect in a subsequent Superior Court damages action.
