UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department,
Order Setting Briefing Schedule and
Hearing on Motion for Temporary
[ECF No. 7]
John Sabatini is an employee of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (“Metro”)
who works at the Clark County Detention Center and sues Metro under 42 U.S.C. § 1983,
alleging that Metro violated his rights to freedom of expression and due process under state and
federal laws when it fired Sabatini for certain posts that he made to his personal Facebook
account.1 Sabatini also alleges that Metro violated state and federal laws when it retaliated
against him—by threatening to pull him from his current post assignment—for filing this action.2
Sabatini now moves for an order temporarily restraining Metro from taking any adverse
employment action against him.3 The court believes that it will be beneficial to have a truncated
briefing schedule and verbal argument by the parties on the issues raised by Sabatini’s motion.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Metro has until June 2, 2017, to respond
to Sabatini’s motion for temporary restraining order [ECF No. 7]. Sabatini must file any reply
by 3 p.m. on June 6, 2017. Sabatini’s motion for temporary restraining order [ECF No. 7] will
be heard at 9 a.m. on June 7, 2017, in Courtroom 6D of the Lloyd D. George U.S. Courthouse.
DATED: May 30, 2017.
