We at Horsley Begnaud LLC are dedicated to protecting the civil rights of all Georgians. Civil rights are the rights that protect your basic human liberties against government harassment, and which also allow you to live your life without discrimination or oppression. These rights are guaranteed by the United States Constitution, the Georgia Constitution, and various federal and state laws. When your civil rights are violated, you have the right to file a lawsuit seeking justice and compensation for your injuries.
Civil rights litigation is difficult work, however. Civil rights lawsuits have very complex procedural rules, and if you do not follow those rules perfectly you risk having your case dismissed. Our civil rights lawyers have years of experience successfully litigating a wide range of civil rights lawsuits, and we can guide your case past these hurdles. We understand the intricacies of filing proper ante litem notice, navigating the Prison Litigation Reform Act, addressing any claims of immunity (such as qualified, official, 11th Amendment, sovereign, and legislative immunities), determining the proper entity to sue, and properly handling all of the various roadblocks to civil recovery.
Examples of typical civil rights lawsuits include the following:
