California Court of Appeal

Carter v. Escondido Union High Sch. Dist., D046833, D047649

In a suit for wrongful termination claiming employer declined to reelect plaintiff to his probationary teaching position in retaliation for blowing the whistle on a football coach who recommended a nutritional supplement to a student, a jury verdict for plaintiff is reversed as defendant's decision to terminate plaintiff was not prohibited by law or in contravention of well-established public policy, and thus provided no basis for liability under California law.
