Did a police officer, in uniform and on duty, use excessive force during an arrest of you or a loved one? Perhaps you were falsely arrested? If so, your constitutional rights have been violated.
42 U.S.C. § 1983
“Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State of Territory of the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress.”
In other words, a Section 1983 case is a civil cause of action for violations of constitutionally protected rights. These cases involve misuse of power by government officials or employees while on duty and acting within the scope of their employment but not in accordance with the law.
