First Circuit -- Rocket Learning, Inc. v. Rivera-Sanchez

Qualified immunity for gov't official who issued standards for education providers.

Insufficient proof of bad faith for equal protection challenge to allegedly discriminatory rulemaking.

Relevant certification is not a license, so insufficient property interest for a procedural due process claim.

No commercial free speech claim based on providers' inability to sufficiently tout their products.
