Tom Devine, Government Accountability Project Legal Director and '80 alum, was quoted in Corporate Counsel applauding the creation of a new position in the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General called "whistleblower ombudsperson."

"This is a long overdue, much needed, and very healthy structural reform to start the long process of overcoming engrained bias against whistleblowers at the Justice OIG,” says Tom Devine.

He continues: "Justice traditionally is counsel for the United States. They’re trying to defeat whistleblower cases and rip out their charges. The [inspector general] can’t avoid being part of that tradition, even though it has more of an internal watchdog role.”
