Goshen Lawyers Standing Up to Police and Prison Civil Rights Violations
The U.S. Constitution, through the Bill of Rights, protects the rights of the individual against overzealous or abusive tactics by the police and other arms of the government. Civil rights violations in New York City are an ongoing and very real problem, from the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy to illegal searches and incidents of false arrest, excessive force and police brutality. These tactics are not limited to NYC but may occur anywhere. Fortunately, state and federal laws provide victims of civil rights violations with the ability to sue the government for money damages when their rights are violated. Sometimes civil actions against the government are the most effective means to bring attention to this type of behavior and to bring about changes in policy that end such conduct systemwide. Our Orange County civil rights lawyers fight to see that our clients rights are vindicated and that justice is served.
