Other whistleblowers have problems with the 9th circuit

In the below case, a police officer is put on administrative leave after witnessing another officer beat and choke a suspect.  The whistleblower sued in Federal Court to get his job back. The 9th circuit denied his Petition to appeal.  The city has not decided whether to reinstate him on his job.

Despite plenty of state and federal laws to protect whistleblowers, they are still often victimized by the system.
