This is as strange as it gets in Tennessee, and Tennessee is home base for strange in politics and governance:

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) has filed for the dismissal of a whistleblower lawsuit filed by a former employee against the State of Tennessee, TWRA and TWRA Executive Director, Jason Maxedon.

The Motion to Dismiss was filed Oct. 10 and says, "Defendants deny that they violated Tenn. Code Annotated 50-1-304 and 8-50-116. Nevertheless, Plaintiff’s claims as alleged are due to be dismissed.... Plaintiff’s claims that Defendants have violated state law are barred by sovereign immunity."

Sovereign immunity is a legal doctrine whereby a government entity cannot commit a legal wrong and is immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution.
