Ind. Decisions - One Indiana case from 7th Circuit today

In Massey, Michael v. Johnson, Mable (SD Ind. Larry J. McKinney, Chief Judge), a 17-page opinion, Circuit Judge Ripple writes:

Michael Massey and Mickey Mills, while employed at the Vincennes University Aircraft Technology Center, wrote letters to the Indiana legislature complaining about their superiors. In the aftermath of the letters, both Mr. Massey and Ms. Mills were discharged. They then brought this federal civil rights action, see 42 U.S.C. § 1983, against three University administrators, alleging that they were harassed and terminated in retaliation for exercising their First Amendment rights. The defendants moved for and were awarded summary judgment. For the reasons set forth in the following opinion, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
