Legal Question

Asked on: 3/03/13, 9:41 am

Can you link an FTCA claim to events that occur after the event for which you can prove that the government is directly responsible? For example, if you are a federal agent and you make a whistleblower complaint and the government fires you illegally, then shortly afterward criminals torture you. You can sue the government for violating whistleblower laws and for wrongful termination, but can you also argue that you would most likely not have been tortured by criminals if you had not been wrongfully terminated as a federal agent?
