Civil Rights/ Excessive Force/ False Arrest/ Malicious Prosecution
There are both state and federal laws that protect an individual against violation of their civil or constitutional rights. These laws apply to all employees who work for public entities including States, Counties and Municipalities. They also apply to any person whose civil or constitutional rights have been violated by a public agency or public official or employee.
Potential civil rights and constitution claims include claims for due process violations, violation of free speech rights, discrimination and wrongful termination, retaliation or whistleblowing, false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force and other civil rights violations by the police or any other public agency, entity or official.
