Case Summary:
Michael Mackin files suit against the City and County of San Francisco, after he was rejected for employment as a police officer. Officials rejected Mackin's application after he failed his psychological evaluation. Mackin submitted to two additional psychological reviews. Comments made after the third review were similar to one made after the first evaluation. Mackin argued his evaluation results were published and that he had been denied the liberty to pursue employment in his chosen field. The defendant responded with a motion for summary judgment.
 
Decision of lower jurisdiction:
This is the first judicial review of this case.
 
Outcome:
Mackin loses. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the defendant's motion for summary judgment. The court ruled that Mackin failed to prove information concerning his psychological exam had been published or distributed.
