Default Whistleblower Speed Camera Cop Defeats DC

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/67/6709.asp

Unsuccessful challenge to the cop who blew the whistle on the speed camera program costs Washington, DC an extra $40,507 in legal fees.

"The District of Columbia will have to cut an extra check for $40,507 to the veteran police officer who blew the whistle on speed camera corruption. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Sergeant Mark E. Robinson, who formerly worked on the city's speed camera program, suffered retaliation after he pointed out serious problems with the way the program was run.

Robinson explained that the cameras were not being set up properly, and the program's manager, Lisa Sutter, "had an improper relationship with a non-profit organization." Sutter, formerly a long-time speed camera company employee, left MPD in 2015. On Wednesday, US District Judge Rudolph Contreras rejected the city's attempt to nullify the jury verdict in Robinson's favor on the grounds of racial discrimination (Robinson is black)."
