UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
against TPCG; the plaintiff’s Section 1983 claims based on an
alleged Fourth Amendment violation due to drug testing policy and
administration were dismissed as to each defendant.
plaintiff’s Section 1983 claim based on TPCG’s alleged Fourteenth
Amendment violation bearing on the plaintiff’s termination of
employment without due process remains pending; that claim is
sufficiently segregable from the Fourth Amendment based claims
dismissed on February 22 and March 17, 2017.
administrative interests and equities involved weigh in favor of
certifying this Court’s February 22, 2017 and March 17, 2017 Orders
and Reasons as final judgments. The plaintiff advances no argument
as to why certification should not issue.
