Helping Creek County Residents Obtain Recourse For Police And Government Misconduct

Understanding A Civil Rights Lawsuit

Under federal law, individuals are authorized to file civil actions against persons acting under "color of law" for deprivation or violation of constitutional or other federal rights including:

  • Freedom of speech rights under the First Amendment
  • Freedom of expressing religion under the First Amendment
  • Freedom of assembly under the First Amendment
  • Protections from unwarranted searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment
  • Protection from cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment
  • Protection against due process violations under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments

This law was passed in an effort to prevent oppressive, overreaching conduct by police officers, correctional officers and other government officials.
