Suit against co-worker for allegedly malicious snitch is dismissed

Aiman Farhoud sued Darice Rosario after Rosario reported to Hospital security that Farhoud made a disturbing comment.  An R.N., Rosario claimed she heard Farhoud, whose job was to extract heart catheter lines, say "Can you pull this sheath for me before I have to shoot somebody?"  When Hospital security confronted Farhoud later that day, he explained that Rosario must have mis-heard a jocular comment and that she was retaliating for his previous criticism of her work.

Farhoud was not disciplined and weeks later he filed a defamation lawsuit against Rosario.  Rather than saying that Farhoud should not "make a mountain out of a mole hill," in the vernacular, the Court said that Rosario's report was not actionable and that Farhoud's claims of malice were not adequately supported by facts.
