(Cleveland, OH) -- The Cleveland Hopkins International Airport employee who raised concerns about snow removal to federal inspectors will get a hefty payday. City officials agreed this month to settle Abdul Malik-Ali's civil rights claim for $425,000 and a $3200 raise. Malik-Ali filed the whistleblower lawsuit after he was demoted in 2015 for reporting safety issues to the FAA.
