Case Description: 

On the initial appeal that Public Citizen handled, the Court of Appeals remanded with instructions to allow the plaintiffs to proceed with their claims of discipline without due process; after the trial court found a different reason to dismiss the claims, the court of appeals reversed a second time and remanded with instructions to assign the case to a new trial judge. The initial trial judge did so, in an opinion that denounced the Seventh Circuit for not understanding the case.
