Whistleblower plans to sue lottery over alleged retaliation

SALEM — A former employee has filed notice he intends to sue the Oregon Lottery for retaliating against him for blowing the whistle on the agency’s leadership for questionable management practices.

Trinh Tran, a former lottery procurement officer, resigned from the agency in October, several weeks after then-acting Lottery Director Barry Pack took disciplinary steps against him, according to a tort claim notice filed in December.

Tran claims the disciplinary action came after he reported issues concerning Jack Roberts, who at the time Tran filed his report was director of the lottery.

Tran alleged that Pack pursued disciplinary action against him despite an internal investigation of Tran that found “no evidence of inappropriate conduct or violations of policy.” The investigation, initiated by Pack in May, alleged that Tran engaged in “intimidating” and “belittling” behavior toward his colleagues.
