Milwaukee Deputy Sheriff's Ass'n v. Clarke, No. 08-3298

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

In an action claiming retaliation in violation of the First Amendment, district court's grant of summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) the officer's disputed statements were not a matter of public concern, and thus were not protected by the First Amendment; and 2) the revised confidentiality policy issued by the Sheriff's Office did not constitute an unlawful prior restraint because it regulates only speech not subject to First Amendment protection.
