Gunville v. Walker, No. 08-1035

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In plaintiffs' lawsuit against various Illinois state officials arising from termination of their employment with the Illinois Department of Corrections after a change in the governing party, district court's summary judgment in favor of the defendants is affirmed where: 1) summary judgment on the First Amendment claims was appropriate as the witness's statement that voting records were accessed and used in certain personnel decision is inadmissible hearsay; and 2) due process claims were properly rejected as plaintiffs have no evidence of improper motive in interpreting personnel rules to support their claim that only they or only Republican employees were singled out for the new personnel policy.
