On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit found that since part of Pierson?s duties was policy making, his political affiliation was a proper basis for termination. The case was reversed and remanded with instructions to grant Blagojevich?s motion for judgment on the pleadings. See: Pierson v. Blagojevich, 437 F.3d 587 (7th Cir. 2006).
