Supreme Court to review how contract whistleblower law works

In this case from Ohio, two workers for a sub-contractor used the US Government whistleblower law to inform their prime that their was issues with defrauding the government. See the Dayton Daily News for the story. The first court ruled that they couldn’t do this as it had to be reported to the government, not another contractor. On appeal this decision was overruled. Now it is heading for the Supreme Court. Previously the courts consistently have held that the report must be to the government, as they are the ones being defrauded. If the Supreme Court overturns precedent it will probably lead to more whistleblower type cases.

See this press release here from Senator Bayh about the recent contract award to Allison Transmission. This was previously reported at DefenseProcurementNews.com here.
