Civil Rights Law

Slide 5: 

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States that outlawed major forms of discrimination against blacks and women, including racial segregation. It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public ("public accommodations"). Once the Act was implemented, its effects were far-reaching on the country as a whole and had an immediate impact on the South. It prohibited discrimination in public facilities, in government, and in employment, invalidating the Jim Crow laws in the southern U.S. It became illegal to compel segregation of the races in schools, housing, or hiring. Civil Rights Act of 1964

Slide 6: 

Statutes of limitations Victims of police misconduct have one year in the state of Illinois to file state tort claims against government agents and municipalities under the Illinois Tort Immunity Act. Thus, it is essential that if you have been a victim you seek civil law lawyers immediately due to the strict statutes of limitations which can time bar a claim. Federal courts adjudicating civil rights claims under 42 U.S.C. §1983 must borrow the state statute of limitations applicable to personal injury actions under the law of the forum state. In Illinois, most Section 1983 actions must be brought within two years from the date the action accrued.

Slide 7: 

In order to recover under 42 U.S.C. §1983, the challenged conduct must be committed “under color of law.” This means that the defendant must have acted in an official, government capacity, clothed with the authority of the state, in order to be held liable. Miga v. City of Holyoke, 398 Mass. 343 (1986). Monroe v. Pape, 365 U.S. 167 (1961). Acts committed in pursuit of personal interests (private action) are not "under color of law." Cronin v. Town of Amesbury, 895 F. Supp. 375 (D. Mass.), aff'd, 81 F.3d 257 (1st Cir. 1995); Bonsignore v. City of New York, 683 F.2d 635 (2d Cir. 1982).  This is true, even if the police officer is on duty at the time he commits such acts. Delcambre v. Delcambre, 635 F.2d 407 (5th Cir. 1981). Did The Defendant Act Under Color Of State Law?

Slide 8: 

An Off-duty police officer who invokes the real or apparent authority of the police department, or who engages in activity prescribed generally for police officers, may be acting "under color of law. United States v. Tarpley, 945 F.2d 806 (5th Cir. 1991), cert. denied, 112 S.Ct. 1960 (1992). A police officer on private detail acts "under color of law." Did The Defendant Act Under Color Of State Law?

Actual or Compensatory Damages Nominal Damages Punitive Damages Attorney's Fees Relief from some issues:

Slide 10: 

Actual or Compensatory Damages : A victim unlawfully deprived of his or her civil rights is entitled to recover from the police officer responsible for such deprivation for the out-of-pocket expenses he or she sustained as a result of the defendant's conduct. 2. Nominal Damages : When a plaintiff can establish that he was unlawfully deprived of a constitutional or federally-protected right as a result of a police officer's activities, but cannot prove actual harm, then he is entitled to an award of nominal damages ($1) from the jury. Relief from some issues:

Slide 11: 

3. Punitive Damages : Punitive damages may be awarded against a law enforcement official if he or she acted with "evil motive or intent," or with "reckless or callous indifference" to the claimant's civil rights. Smith v. Wade, 461 U.S. 30 (1983). A municipality, however, is immune from liability for punitive damages. City of Newport v. Fact Concerts, Inc., 453 U.S. 247 (1981). 4. Attorney's Fees : Under 42 U.S.C. Section 1988, the "prevailing party" in any action brought under Section 1983 may recover "a reasonable attorney's fee" as part of her costs. Moreover, this fee may include expert witness fees. The award of a reasonable attorney's fee is within the sound discretion of the trial court, although that discretion is not without limits. Relief from some issues:

Police Abuse and Misconduct

Slide 14: 

Misconduct by Police:

Slide 15: 

Police Abuse and Misconduct Police misconduct is not restricted to physical abuse and/or injuries. Violating a person’s civil rights, falsifying physical evidence, and making false statements can effectively convict you of a crime you did not commit. civil rights laws enable victims to file lawsuits and receive compensation for police misconduct.

Slide 16:

We will review the evidence to determine the facts of the case including: Witness statements Medical reports Police statements/interviews Arrest reports Accident reports Video recordings 911 call transcripts/recordings

Slide 18: 

Police Brutality Police brutality is a violation of Section 1983 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and allows individuals to sue for civil rights violations.

Slide 19: 

Lawsuits Against Police Brutality Lawsuits for police brutality can be brought against: Police officers Prison guards Law enforcement officers/officials

Slide 20: 

Police Brutality Injury: Despite the fact that law enforcement’s duty is to serve and protect, the trauma and emotional scars of police brutality can be severe and long lasting. Police brutality can cause serious personal injury including: Mental/emotional trauma Long-term/permanent physical impairment Wrongful death

Slide 21: 

False Arrest:

Slide 22: 

False Arrest: A false arrest claim is an intentional tort and requires a showing of (1) an arrest under process of law (2) without probable cause and (3) made maliciously. A lack of probable cause exists when the circumstances are such as to satisfy a reasonable man that the accuser had no ground for proceeding but his desire to injure the accused.

Slide 23: 

False Arrest: Resisting Unlawful Arrest In some instances, an individual may realize they are the target of false arrest and attempt to resist flee. This is known as resisting unlawful arrest, and is a possible justification for such resistance where it would otherwise be a crime (i.e. resisting arrest, flight to avoid prosecution, assault, or even murder). Justification for such action is often hard to prove in court, and only justified in certain circumstances. Simple mistake of fact situations would generally not warrant attempting to elude Law enforcement. However, there are some that would, such as: the person making the arrest never identifying themselves, causing the defendant to believe they are the target of kidnapping or robbery. the reasonable belief that the person making the arrest is an impersonator with the intent of victimizing the defendant. the reasonable belief that the defendant would be the victim of police brutality if taken into custody by that individual.

Slide 24: 

Constitutional Rights Violations The Law Offices of Justin London protects those deprived of their constitutional or federally protected rights including rights under the: First Amendment (protects freedom of religion, free speech, freedom of the press and the right to peaceably assemble) Fourth Amendment (protects right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures; provides that warrants shall issue only upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation) Sixth Amendment (protects right to an attorney in criminal proceedings) Eighth Amendment (prohibits cruel and unusual punishment) Fourteenth Amendment (a person's rights to life, liberty or property shall not be deprived without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied equal protection of the laws)
