U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 930 F.2d 34 (10th Cir. 1991) April 4, 1991

Before HOLLOWAY, Chief Judge, ALDISERT*  and LOGAN, Circuit Judges.


LOGAN, Circuit Judge.

Plaintiff Tony Lovato appeals the district court's summary judgment order in favor of the City of Albuquerque and its employee, Robert Sanchez, on plaintiff's claims for wrongful retaliation in violation of the First Amendment and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. On appeal plaintiff dropped a claim he had earlier asserted under 42 U.S.C. § 1981.

After reviewing the record, we are convinced that the district court correctly analyzed the law and facts. We affirm for substantially the reasons stated in the district court Memorandum Opinion and Order entered March 9, 1990.
