Lawffice Links - Snowden: Whistleblower or Criminal

Employment law doesn't usually entail top secret national surveillance programs, accusations of treason, and international media firestorms . . . so the least I can do is bake some Lawffice Links when it does:

  • THE ORDER: The top secret order that kicked off the media coverage (fun fact: the judge who signed the order, Roger Vinson, is the same Florida judge who ruled that Obamacare was unconstitutional and struck down the entire law).
  • TREASON: Senator Nelson accuses Edward Snowden of treason.
  • DEBATE: New York Times Room for Debate:Leak Case, a Whistle-Blower or a Criminal.
  • LEGAL RISKS: CNN Video: Legal Risks for NSA Leaker.
  • WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION: Loopholes Exclude Intelligence Contractors Like Snowden from Whistleblower Protections.
