Two top commanders and 30 year veterans of the Los Angeles Fire Department have filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming that they were retaliated against because they made whistleblowing reports about misconduct, including at least one false arrest and fabrication of evidence. 

The firefighters, Battalion Chief John Miller and Capt. Michael Rueda, claim that they were removed from the Fire Department's elite Arson & Counterterrorism Unit after reporting violations of federal and state statutes by other members of the unit.  Both men are long-time veterans with 30 plus years of service.

Robert L. Abell, a lawyer in Lexington, Kentucky, represents individual employees in whistleblower suits arising in both the public and private sectors; contact him at 859-254-7076.
