Vindicated! ‘Fast and Furious’ whistleblower wins lawsuit against government; judge calls case Kafka-like

jay2The United States government went after retired Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent Jay Dobyns in court, accusing him of violating his employment agreement by writing a book and producing a movie about his experiences.

Federal judge Francis Allegra rejected the government’s claim and has ordered the U.S. to pay Dobyns $173,000. 

Citing “organizational weakness” within the ATF, the judge said that there did not appear to be a conspiracy against Dobyns, who has fought the agency for years over alleged mistreatment, as it attempted to cover up its own corruption.

But Allegra wrote in his conclusion that what happened to the former agent was not about justice, KVOA reported. It was more comparable to Franz Kafka’s book, “The Trial.”

You can learn more details about the complicated judgement and Dobyns’ saga on his blog.

“The image that sat before me and my attorneys during every court proceeding”

Dobyns wrote a lengthy response to the judges opinion. He stated, among other things, that he feels vindicated:

“I have been vindicated… For those who blame me for “rocking the boat” or airing ATF’s ‘dirty laundry’ in public, you’re just going to have to find a way to get over it. I don’t take it back and I wouldn’t if I could.”

He also specifically called out Attorney General Eric Holder at one point:

DOJ’s lack of control created an utter waste of America’s money. Millions and millions of dollars of it.

Attorney General Eric Holder and Civil Division Assistant Attorney General Stuart Delery and Director Jeanne Davidson, you are responsible and I will say that to your faces when and if I’m ever given the chance.  You named on this opinion for a reason.
