Newsflash....Supreme Court Silences Whisleblowers

In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court ruled that a if a public employee discloses wrongdoings in the course of his job he is NOT protected by the 1st Amendment and will not be protected from retaliation, including firing. This could include professors at public universities speaking out against the administration, fire fighters exposing a lack of equipment....the implications are far reaching.
