Robert James Hegeman, pro se.

LAVORATO, Chief Justice.

Robert James Hegeman, an employee of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC), appeals from a summary judgment ruling in which the district court held he was not entitled to relief under Iowa's whistleblower statute against defendants, who were Hegeman's superiors. At issue in this appeal is whether one of the superiors was a public official within the meaning of the statute. The district court ruled he was not and we agree.
