Monahan v. Romney, 09-2458

Former official's suit against former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Governor's senior staff for due process violations

Monahan v. Romney, 09-2458, concerned a plaintiff's suit against former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and several members of the Governor's senior staff claiming that the defendants had unconstitutionally removed him from his office as Chairman of the Massachusetts Civil Service Commission in 2003, depriving him of his protected property and liberty interests without due process of law.

 

In affirming the district court's entry of judgment for the defendants on all counts, the court held that the district court's finding that plaintiff had voluntarily resigned is well supported in the evidence and the district court committed no error.
