Former Penn State University assistant coach Mike McQueary, the only non-victim witness to testify to having seen Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting children, has filed a wrongful termination “whistleblower” suit against the university.
CNN has the story:
In support of McQueary’s whistleblower claim, the lawsuit states he was the only assistant football coach who was not invited to interview for employment with the incoming new head football coach after longtime coach Joe Paterno was fired amid the Sandusky scandal.
McQueary also claims he was the only former employee who was not reimbursed for legal fees, and that he did not receive his severance payments on time.
According to the lawsuit, after testifying in court, McQueary was placed on administrative leave with pay in November 2011, only to later be terminated in July 2012. A copy of a letter from the university athletics director concerning the administrative leave was filed along with the lawsuit.
What do you think of McQueary’s claim? Was he really a whistleblower?
