Golodner v. Berliner, 12-1173-cv

In this First Amendment retaliation suit, defendant-officials seek summary judgment on the basis of qualified immunity for retaliating against plaintiff for filing an earlier lawsuit against the City and several of its police officers. Denial of summary judgment is affirmed, and the case remanded for continued proceedings, where plaintiff's earlier lawsuit constituted speech that raised matters of public concern by the First Amendment and his right to be free of government retaliation based on such speech was well established at the time of the alleged retaliatory conduct.
