From Fox News:

Judicial Watch has filed a First Amendment lawsuit on behalf of an Illinois teacher who was fired after criticizing the rioting, looting and other violence that broke out in Chicago after the death of George Floyd last May.

Jeanne Hedgepeth, of Palatine, 35 miles northwest of Willis Tower, made the posts on her personal Facebook account while on summer break following the end of the school year, the conservative legal group said in a statement. She did not exchange posts with any current students or colleagues, and the profile made no mention of her employer.

Floyd was killed on May 25 in an incident that was recorded on video and led to a conviction on murder charges for one of the four Minneapolis police officers involved. Three others are still awaiting trial.

In the days that followed, protests and riots broke out around the country. That weekend in Chicago, which saw extensive looting, 82 people were shot, 19 fatally. The Chicago Sun-Times described that Sunday, May 31, as the most violent day the Windy City had seen in 60 years.

“I don’t want to go home tomorrow,” Hedgepeth wrote on Facebook that day, while vacationing in Florida. “Now that the civil war has begun I want to move.”
