Bhat v. DC Water & Sewer Authority

Bhat v. DC Water & Sewer Authority, in which the water quality manager for DC’s water provider was vindicated, after being terminated for disclosing to the EPA excessive lead levels in the drinking water. The Department of Labor’s 186-page decision awarded full relief, plus compensatory and punitive damages, after an eight-day public hearing regarding her termination. The case was publicized nationally and internationally on MSNBC, NPR, Voice of America, and the Hindustani Times (India’s English daily), among others, and locally (in Washington, DC) on the front page and editorial pages of The Washington Post, on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and WAMU Radio (88.5 FM). The Washington Post editorial after her victory was entitled, “Justice for Seema Bhat.”
