The Blog of Legal Times:  “The Justice Department is appealing a jury verdict and $300,000 judgment won by a former FBI supervisor in Saudi Arabia who said the agency retaliated against him for complaining about discrimination. . . . Rattigan, a black male of Jamaican descent who converted to Islam in December 2001, said in the suit that in response to complaints about workplace discrimination, the government retaliated against him by monitoring and investigating him.  The FBI investigated Rattigan to determine whether he was a security risk.”
