U.S. Supreme Court Denies Review Of Tenth Circuit's Ruling That Hospital Employee's � 1983 Claim Was Meritless

The U.S. Supreme Court denied review of the Tenth Circuit's ruling that a state university hospital employee's 42 U.S.C. � 1983 claim that her discharge was partially in retaliation for her speech concerning internal air quality should never have been submitted to a jury. The hospital was entitled to judgment as a matter of law because employee's interest as a citizen commenting on a matter of public concern did not outweigh the interests of the hospital in promoting the efficiency of the public services it performs. The Tenth Circuit's opinion is published at 260 F.3d 1218 (10th Cir. 2001) and is summarized at HLD, v. 29, n. 11, at p. 34.
