Right to Name-Clearing Hearing Clearly Established

From the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals' unofficial summaries:

083148P.pdf 09/03/2009 Douglas Rush v. Barbara Perryman

U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 08-3148
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Batesville
[PUBLISHED] [Smith, Author, with Gruender and Benton, Circuit Judges]
Civil case - civil rights. Where plaintiff was terminated in an open session of the College Board for alleged misconduct including dishonesty, an accepted stigmatizing charge, and requested a name-clearing hearing, which the Board denied, the Board was not entitled to summary judgment based on qualified immunity on plaintiff's due process claims as the right to a name-clearing hearing in such circumstances is clearly established.
