BNSF, CV-15-124-DWM, a suit brought in the District of Montana (Missoula).  The plaintiff alleged BNSF violated 49 U.S.C. § 20109 by retaliating against him for engaging in protected activities.  This was the first case of its kind tried to a jury in the District of Montana. On December 15, 2016, the seven-person jury returned a unanimous verdict in BNSF’s favor, finding that BNSF did not violate the law when it dismissed the plaintiff for violating safety rules.
