Will the Buffalo Diocese Whistleblower Face Legal Action?

I provided legal analysis for WIVB News 4’s recent story on Siobhan O’Connor, the former Diocese of Buffalo employee who leaked documents regarding the diocese’s handling of priests accused of sexual abuse.

Ms. O’Connor was featured in a report on 60 Minutes, which detailed the documents and information she released. WIVB’s follow-up story on the 60 Minutes report focused on the question of whether or not whistleblowers may face legal ramifications and if Ms. O’Connor specifically could face legal action.
