Episode # 77
Today we are discussing the first two case wrap-ups in my annual Supreme Court Roundup. On Friday, the Supreme Court handed down two decisions that deal with the extent to which a government employee is engaging in state action when posting on social media.
These cases are Lindke v Freed and O’Conner-Ratcliff v Garnier.
