Gary Vander Boegh v. EnergySolutions, Inc.

<> Gary Vander Boegh v. EnergySolutions, Inc. - 11/18/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit, Case No. 14-5047. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky at Paducah. The Appeals Court indicated, "Gary Vander Boegh applied for a job with EnergySolutions. He alleges that the prospective employer did not hire him because he engaged in protected whistleblower activity at a prior job. The district court held that Vander Boegh lacked statutory standing as an applicant―not employee―and granted summary judgment in favor of EnergySolutions. Because we agree that Vander Boegh lacks statutory standing under the Energy Reorganization Act and False Claims Act, and we lack subject-matter jurisdiction over the remaining claims, we affirm.
