Depree v. Saunders, No. 08-60978

By FindLaw Staff on November 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a First Amendment action by a state university professor alleging that defendants deprived plaintiff of his ability to teach because he criticized the university, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed in part where: 1) no clearly established law dictated that a university official sued in her individual capacity could not impose discipline on plaintiff; and 2) plaintiff failed to identify a cognizable property right for due process purposes.  However, the order is reversed in part where plaintiff's claim against university administrators in their official capacities could yield prospective injunctive relief.
