Attorneys and Civil Rights

Under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, attorneys who are acting “under color of law,” that is who are working for the government, can be sued for violating “due process.” With due process, which is a right described in the Fifth Amendment, each of us is guaranteed a fair trial that follows in the same basic manner as any other trial, and during the trial certain legal standards are observed.

Due process is an important aspect of our civil rights. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” If an attorney who is under color of law in any way violates your right to due process, then they may be sued.

Your Rights

If an attorney under color of law has infringed upon your rights concerning due process, you have every right to sue and get the justice you deserve. Violations of due process include actions by attorneys that negate your ability to receive a fair trial. This can include withholding key information concerning your case, including evidence that could exonerate you, conspiring with law enforcement, and actions that deliberately delay or negate your ability to defend yourself.
