About This Course

The rise in police brutality has come hand-in-hand with a rise in police lying. This rise has impacted criminal proceedings, hides misconduct and drastically reduces the public’s respect and support for law enforcement. Even worse, few officers are called to account, even when police reports are falsified, essentially created a court-reinforced criminality. Under the 42 USC § 1983 for fabrication of evidence, wherein lawyers may sue police and municipalities for false arrest, loss of employment, malicious prosecution and damage to reputation. Damages for emotional distress, criminal defense, lost earning capacity and punitive damages may also be recouped.

This CLE course will explain how to find concealed evidence or even that misconstrued by law enforcement, accessing private-party insurance coverage to fund litigation against public agencies and suing private parties for conspiracy with law enforcement and defamation. Presented by an attorney experienced in handling a federal fabrication of evidence case through pretrial, appeal, and trial after remand, the course will include a review of materials, forms and authorities for proceeding at key stages of the action. The course will end with a special discussion on the Senate pending proposed amendments to Section 1983 under the Justice in Policing Act.
