Justices Set Limits on Public Employees’ Speech Rights – New York Times


Certain well-known “Activist Judges” prove they will do what they can to bury whistleblowers and thus protect government corruption and scandal from ever being revealed. Did anyone believe they’d ever see the US ruled by such a shadowy, nefarious bunch of goons as represented by the Bush admin and his court?

The Supreme Court declared today, in a ruling affecting millions of government employees, that the Constitution does not always protect their free-speech rights for what they say on the job.

In a 5-to-4 decision, the court held that public employees’ free-speech rights are protected when they speak out as citizens on matters of public concern, but not when they speak out in the course of their official duties.
