Practice Areas

If  the government has violated your constitutional rights, you need an experienced Section 1983 litigation attorney on your side. A Section 1983 Civil Action can be a powerful tool to hold government officials accountable when your constitutional rights are violated.


The most important federal law you can use to protect your constitutional rights against governmental misconduct is 42 USC Section 1983. The best recognized example of a Section 1983 lawsuit is where a law enforcement officer violates a citizen's constitutional right to be free from excessive use of force. Section 1983 gives private citizens the right to sue the government and its employees for constitutional violations. Governmental agencies rarely admit violations and liability. Sometimes, a Section 1983 action is the only way to protect yourself from abuse by  state, county or city officials.


Constitutional claims are complex. Section 1983 is to enforce the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution (i.e. Bill of Rights) Common examples include:


  • First Amendment Claims involving your right to freedom of speech, religion                          and association
  • Fourth Amendment Claims involving your right to be free from false arrest, illegal detention, malicious prosecution and intentional police abuse.
  • Eight Amendment Claims involving your right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment
  • Fourteen Amendment Claims involving your right to be free from depravations of life, liberty or property wition procedural due process.


Section 1983 civil litigation is an area of law in which few lawyers practice. Even fewer are successful. If your constitutional rights have been violated, you need immediate help. Call Attorney Eddie Sipplen at 330-374-5600 for a free consultation.
