Former U.S. Attorney Rachel Paulose retaliated against John Marti, a former first assistant U.S. attorney for the district of Minnesota, according to an investigation by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The OSC concluded that Paulose “constructively demoted” Marti to a staff attorney position because he reported concerns about Paulose’s handling of classified materials to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to the investigation report, Paulose routinely left classified documents concerning possible terrorist activities unsecured on her desk or on a shelf in her office.
Immediately after Marti filed the DOJ report, Paulose removed him from his job, violating the federal Whistleblower Protection Act, the OSC said.
Marti received a settlement of back pay plus an undisclosed lump sum from the DOJ. Neither side admitted wrongdoing in the settlement.
