Description of Issues:

Dr. Leota was born in American Fanua, an unincorporated US territory. She accepted a job as a counselor with the City of Apalsa Police Department in the State of Apalsa. Despite US citizenship being a requirement of the job and her marking that she was a US national, she was hired anyway. While working there, the city became engulfed in outrage due to an episode of police brutality. Dr. Leota Tweeted comments criticizing the use of excessive force after attending a community meeting on the subject. The next day, an anonymous source contacted the police department to inform them that Dr. Leota was not a US citizen and she was fired. She filed suit for unlawful termination.
