DHHR CONTRACT
Judge throws out whistleblower lawsuit against Department of Health and Human Resources

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, June 19, 2014 11:49 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


A lawsuit filed by two former Department of Health and Human Resources employees for raising concerns about an advertising contract has been dismissed.

Kanawha Circuit Judge Jim Stucky granted the DHHR's motion for summary judgment last week.

Former DHHR deputy secretary Susan Perry and former general counsel Jennifer Taylor filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the DHHR in 2012.

Taylor, Perry and former DHHR spokesman John Law were reassigned in July 2012 after they objected to the handling of a six-figure advertising contract. They were eventually fired.

The Charleston Gazette reports Stucky's dismissal order says Taylor and Perry "were engaged in wrongful conduct" when they intervened in the contract.
