A woman involved in the recent upheaval at the State Fire Marshal’s office has won at least one round in court. Jen Worthington filed a lawsuit, asking the court to keep her bosses from firing her. Worthington was a fire prevention supervisor in the State Fire Marshal’s office and had been accused of filing false reports. She said another employee in the office had altered the reports, and she accused her bosses of trying to get rid of her because she had snitched about a romantic relationship between a supervisor and another employee in the office. The Supreme Court ruled a state law protecting so-called “whistle-blowers” from being dismissed applies here and has ordered the district court that originally tossed out Worthington’s lawsuit to reexamine her request.
