  • Government must pay $1M in legal fees for FBI whistleblower

    Minneapolis, Minnesota (AP)

    A federal judge ordered the government to pay just over $1 million in legal fees to the attorneys for a former FBI agent who sued the bureau for alleged retaliation after she filed a 1998 sex-discrimination complaint.

    Chief U.S. District Judge James Rosenbaum turned aside the government’s objections and during January ordered the payment for Jane Turner of St. Paul, who won damages totally $360,000 in February after a jury ruled in her favor.
