SANTA FE — A former New Mexico Corrections Department employee filed a lawsuit in District Court last week alleging the department violated the state's Whistleblower Protection Act when he was fired from his job at the state penitentiary a year ago.

Enrique Fernandez, who had worked at the main correctional facility south of Santa Fe for 14 years, was let go after he provided his superiors with information about three other prison employees who allegedly were members of a motorcycle club.
