Gilbert v. Illinois State Bd. Educ., No. 08-3678

By FindLaw Staff on January 11, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In plaintiff's action against the Board of Education of a High School District arising from his discharge as a high school social studies teacher and subsequent proceedings, district court's dismissal of his current action is affirmed where: 1) the district court correctly decided that plaintiff's case is barred by the Rooker-Feldman doctrine; and 2) the judge did not abuse his discretion in dismissing plaintiff's third amended complaint for declaratory relief in concluding that plaintiff's complaint failed to state an injury that was redressable, since subsequent events had cured whatever ambiguity there may have been in the state's procedures.
