. This is an action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and the United States Constitution challenging the deprivation of Plaintiff's rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. Corporal Steven Armbruster was suspended from duty as a police officer for 1) telling his chief that an order to push demonstrators off campus was unconstitutional and for 2) failing to carry out an order to remove a "disorderly" demonstrator even though he knew the demonstrators were not disorderly.

Assuming that all of Arbruster’s factual allegations can be proved, does he have a case under 1983?
