Police Misconduct & Wrongful Conviction

If someone in the government has violated your civil rights, you pay a claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 –commonly known as § 1983 claims (example: someone who was wrongfully imprisoned for a crime they did not commit).  To succeed on a § 1983 claim, a person must prove that their constitutional rights were violated.  Civil rights claims can rise from police officers engaging in illegal behavior, violating constitutional rights, or committing acts of violence, among other issues.  If successful, they may be entitled to damages for the government or state actor’s violations.

Gender Discrimination & Title IX

Sex/gender discrimination and sexual harassment both fall under the umbrella of gender discrimination.  Gender discrimination is the unequal treatment of an individual or group based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.   Your civil rights may have been violated if you were treated unfairly or denied opportunities because of your gender when seeking housing, in your employment or education. Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination.  If a person’s conduct is unwelcome or offensive to a reasonable person, it may constitute sexual harassment.  
It is illegal be treated unfairly because of your gender in protected settings. Take action without hesitation. Discussing these matters with an experienced civil rights attorney is the best approach to protecting your rights.

Title IX stipulates that no person in the United States may be barred from participation in, denied benefits from, or discriminated against because of their gender in any education program or activity that receives federal funding. Title IX is federal legislation that prohibits sexual violence, rape, harassment, exhibitionism, threats, and abuse in an educational setting in its broadest sense. It also forbids any form of discrimination based on gender, protecting men and women equally.
