Civil Rights and Constitutional Law
The Civil Rights and Constitutional protections afforded to everyone
protects individuals from misconduct by law enforcement and people who
are in positions of power. Some of the claims might include cases of
false arrest, government retaliation, free-speech, malicious
prosecution, excessive force, and abuse of prisoners’ rights.
Civil Rights law also includes wrongful termination and employment
discrimination. Your civil rights are specifically protected from abuses
of power by government, police, corrections officers, and other law
enforcement officials under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 of this country’s
civil rights code.
