On February 19th DC fire investigators Greg Bowyer and Gerald Pennington filed a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit against the DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services ("DCFEMS") and Fire Chief Dennis Rubin in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The suit alleges that they were retaliated against for reporting the Department's mishandling of fire investigations. You can read a press release on the lawsuit here.
