Appeal Perfected in Collin County Community College District Whistleblower Suit

The plaintiffs have perfected their appeal in the whistleblower suit against Collin County Community College District. As explained in previous posts, the trial court dismissed the case on the defendant’s assertion that it was immune to whistleblower suits, this despite the whistleblower statute containing an explicit waiver of immunity not only to suit but also to liability. The anomaly was compounded by the trial court’s refusal to file findings of fact and conclusions of law to support his ruling, even though the court had a duty to make the filing.

This may become a case of public interest. Many people have a stake in an effective waiver of immunity in the whistleblower statute. If the trial court’s ruling is affirmed by the appellate court, the whistleblower statute may be severely impaired, depending on the basis of the appellate court’s ruling. If the waiver is vitiated, fixing it should then become a priority for the 2017 legislature.
