Defendant was not a state actor for purposes of 42 USC 1983 and thus could not be sued under that section when it canceled plaintiff’s license to use a portion of its leased premises to present a program by a speaker that was anti-LGBT rights and thus contrary to defendant’s values.  Under Burton v. Wilmington Parking Auth., 365 U.S. 715, 725 (1961), a private actor can be considered a state actor under the joint action or “symbiotic relationship” test if the government has so far insinuated itself into a position of interdependence with a private entity that the private entity must be recognized as a joint participant in the challenged activity.  Here, unlike Burton, the defendant’s business did not support city government financially or otherwise.  The only city involvement had been the city’s purchase of the building as surplus US property which a private party could not buy, and its triple net lease of the property to defendant for $1 a year, with defendant to pay all acquisition and renovation costs.
