Marcum v. McWhorter.

U.S. Appeals Court

TERMINATION

FREE SPEECH

Marcum v. McWhorter, 308 F.3d 635 (6th Cir. 2002). A former deputy sheriff sued a sheriff, alleging that his First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated when he was fired for carrying on an intimate relationship with, and cohabitating with a married woman. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the sheriff and the appeals court affirmed. The appeals court held that the deputy's adulterous affair was not constitutionally protected, noting that the right to engage in an intimate sexual relationship with the spouse of another could not be said to be deeply rooted in the nation's history and tradition.
