Johnson, his supervisor at Gold Cross, alleging workplace discrimination and constructive discharge on the basis of veteran status, in violation of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act of 1994, 38 U.S.C. §§4301-4335 (“USERRA”). Michael T. Amendola and Roger A. Swor, Gold Cross paramedics, also sued under USERRA alleging retaliation by Gold Cross and Johnson for providing statements in support of Lisdahl’s claims.

Mayo Found. for Medical Educ. and Research, Nos. 08-6231, 08-6232, 2010 WL 1286087 (D.Minn. Mar. 29, 2010). Having jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291 of these consolidated appeals, this court affirms.
