McCann v. Brady, 18-2175

Held that legislative immunity blocked an Illinois state senator from suing the senate minority leader for violating his constitutional rights by ousting him from the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus and thereby denying him certain resources. The plaintiff was expelled from the caucus when he decided to run for governor under the banner of a new party, the Conservative Party.
