WSF's Don Soeken and client Vikki Mata interviewed
In a interview with talk show host Peter B. Collins, WSF client Vikki Mata described her whistleblower case against the state of Oregon where, she says, officials improperly diverted to state coffers federal funds intended to provide health care for needy children. Dr. Don Soeken, Executive Director, WSF, discussed an unfair ruling in her case that is unique in his experience with many similar whistleblower cases. Dr. Soeken also shared some of his helpful tips on blowing the whistle. [Note: Access to the full interview requires a subscription to the Peter B. Collins Show, $5 for one month., or $1 for one day. A preview clip is available at no charge.]
