Julie Perkins, Helman's lawyer, said the former director was "scapegoated to appease Congress" but was happy the judge didn't find her at fault for any of the allegations of secret wait lists and patient deaths. Several whistleblowers had accused Helman of ordering the manipulations for personal benefit so that she would receive large bonuses from the VA, something Helman has steadfastly denied.
"She was completely vindicated of that," Perkins said.
