Prisons employee accuses agency officials of retaliation


COLUMBIA, SC (AP) – A veteran Corrections Department employee has filed a lawsuit claiming agency officials retaliated against her for reporting corruption to state senators.  

The State newspaper of Columbia reported Saturday that Linda Dunlap is suing prisons director Jon Ozmint and the agency’s director of health services, Russell Campbell, claiming they violated her free-speech rights.

Dunlap’s lawsuit accuses the officials of ruthless retaliation that left her with no hope of advancement in rank or pay.

The federal lawsuit was filed Wednesday. It says Dunlap has worked in the agency for three decades and as a health services manager since 1987.
