Description:
This course will introduce you to the litigation of police misconduct cases, including identifying the proper parties, prerequisites to filing the lawsuit, relevant time limitations on doing so, and factors to consider in determining the proper forum in which to bring the action.  This course also provides an overview of the most commonly-asserted claims and defenses under both federal and state law, compares the relative advantages and disadvantages of state and federal law in this area, and discusses what relief is available, including statutory attorney’s fees.  The course will also cover some of the regularly encountered discovery issues and ethical considerations in police misconduct cases.  And whether or not you intend to litigate these cases, this course will prepare you for what you must do to protect a client’s right to bring such a case if you believe that police abuse occurred.
