Cert. Denied in City of Evanston v. Franklin

Congratulations to Tom Goldstein's and Pam Karlan's Supreme Court litigation clinic for successfully opposing cert. in City of Evanston v. Franklin.  In Franklin v. City of Evanston, a unanimous three-judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals found a violation of Franklin's procedural due process rights when, after being arrested for a minor and non-violent crime, he was fired for asserting his privilege against compelled self-incrimination at a job termination hearing.  I summarized Franklin here.
