J. Michael Ray (“Ray”) appeals from the Allen Superior Court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Laidlaw Medical Transportation, Inc. d/b/a American Medical Response of Fort Wayne (“AMR”) in Ray’s “whistleblower” suit against AMR. Upon appeal, Ray claims that the trial court erred in concluding that Ray was required to have reported a violation of federal law or regulation in writing before he was protected under the whistleblower statute, Indiana Code section 22-5-3-3 (2005).
Conclusion (slip op. at 5): Because Ray did not make a written report of the alleged violations prior to his discharge, the whistleblower statute affords him no protection. The trial court therefore did not err in granting summary judgment in favor of AMR. Affirmed.
