Bogart v. Vermilion County, Illinois, 18-1719

Held that it was not unlawful to fire a high-level county government official for her political affiliation, because her position's substantial fiscal and budgetary responsibilities fit within the Elrod-Branti exception to political patronage dismissals. Affirmed summary judgment for the county.
