Coffey v. Cox.
Coffey v. Cox, 218 F.Supp.2d 997 (C.D.Ill. 2002). An applicant who was not chosen for a position with a state correctional facility brought a [section] 1983 action against state employees, alleging political affiliation discrimination. The district court granted summary judgment for the defendants, finding that the decision not to offer the position to the applicant was based on legitimate, non-political reasons. The court noted that other candidates had scored higher on interview questions, and that none of the applicants had been questioned about politics, political support, political affiliation, or political activities at any time during the application or interview process.
