Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action against his Illinois State Police supervisors claiming that they retaliated against him because he complained about the conditions at the firing range, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendants is affirmed but based on a different reason that plaintiff's internal grievance was on a matter of purely private interest, addressing only the effect of lead contamination on himself and his work environment, it did not raise a matter of public concern and is not protected by the First Amendment.
