In a labor and employment action, arising after plaintiff was allegedly fired in retaliation for speaking to local officials about her police supervisors assigning themselves unnecessary overtime to increase their pay and pensions, the district court's denial of defendants' motion for summary judgment is affirmed where, accepting plaintiff's facts as true, defendants are not entitled to qualified immunity on plaintiff's claim that they retaliated against her for engaging in protected speech under the First Amendment.
