U.S. Civil Service v. National Assoc. of Letter Carriers (1973):  Dave assigned this case to show the Pickering test applied and had a opposite result than in the previous case.  In this case, Ps (six fed employees) filed suit, claiming that the Hatch Act violated their First Am. rights because it prevented them from
working for political candidates and from running for political
office.  This Act restricted the government employees not merely on
the job, but also away from work and entirely on their own.  Is the
Hatch Act—which prohibits federal employees from taking an active
part in political management or in political campaigns—a violation of
these employees’ First Am. rights?
