Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
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.
