Earlier this month, Peter Carter, a highly trained surgeon at Portsmouth Regional Hospital filed a lawsuit against entities affiliated with the hospital alleging he was “forced out of his job due to age discrimination, then was defamed by a letter to providers saying he retired.” According to the suit, he built an impressive 34-year surgical career at different medical centers in Maine, York, and Portsmouth.

Earlier this month, a jury in Palm Beach County ruled in favor of a former Palm Beach International Maintenance supervisor and awarded him $2,200 in a “whistleblower lawsuit he filed back in 2015 against the county." The suit was filed by Richard Rosales, now 52, in response to allegations against him that he “was receiving kickbacks from Glue Products of Florida.” However, the Palm Beach County Inspector General determined there was no wrongdoing, according to court documents. Soon after, Rosales filed a public records request to see “who made the claims and was told it would cost him $12,540 to access the documents.” In the end, he learned that “two or more of his subordinates” made the claims against him in 2012.
