Civil Rights

42 U.S.C. § 1983 provides that the U.S. Government may not violate your rights under the U.S Constitution. Courts have interpreted this statute to entitle individuals to sue the United States for any violation of an individual’s Constitutional rights. Pennsylvania and New Jersey both have similar statutes. If you feel that your rights have been violated by government actors, you may be entitled to money damages.
