Publisher Description

We granted review in this matter and in the companion case, Degrassi v. Cook (Nov. 27, 2002, S094248) __ Cal.4th ___ (Degrassi), to consider whether an individual may bring an action for money damages on the basis of an alleged violation of a provision of the California Constitution, in the absence of a statutory provision or an established common law tort authorizing such a damage remedy for the constitutional violation. In the present case, plaintiff seeks, among other relief, monetary damages based upon defendant's alleged violation of his due process "liberty" interest under article I, section 7, subdivision (a), of the California Constitution (hereafter article I, section 7(a)), by failing to provide him with a timely "name-clearing" hearing after his removal as department chairman at a university medical center. We conclude that an action for damages is not available. *fn1
