CASE ENTRY

Fritz v. Evers

Wisconsin teacher is listed as “under investigation” on public website for 17 months without explanation. Investigation is dropped; his name is removed. Teacher: Too late! The damage is done. Seventh Circuit: Can’t sue the superintendent in his official capacity; that’s barred by the Eleventh Amendment. Judge Hamilton, concurring: Which is the correct outcome, but “[t]he combination of stigma and delay poses serious due process questions even if [the teacher] himself is not entitled to relief under federal law.”
