"8th Circ. Panel Upholds BNSF Win In Worker Retaliation Suit"
An Eighth Circuit panel on Thursday backed BNSF Railway Co.’s quick win on claims the company retaliated against three employees for providing information about federal railroad safety violations, saying a lower court correctly tossed some of the claims because the employees didn’t exhaust administrative remedies.
BNSF is represented by Andrew D. Weeks and Katherine Q. Martz of Sattler & Bogen LLP and Bryan P. Neal of Thompson & Knight LLP.
