Civil Rights: First Amendment-FLSA-Retaliation

Where appellant, a former canine officer, argued that a state prosecutor retaliated against him for seeking unpaid overtime compensation, there was no meaningful argument on his First Amendment claim, so the claim is waived, and the district court did not err in dismissing a claim for retaliation brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act since the appellant was not an employee under the act, and the judgment is affirmed because the appellant also did not bring valid due process, conspiracy or state law claims.

Judgment is affirmed.
