At The Sanders Firm, P.C., we note that there are a few things to consider when it comes to civil rights law suits that are based on discriminatory intent. First it must be determined if there is actual discrimination that singles you out due to race, religion, ethnicity, or another such trait. If that is the case, then what must be determined is if such discrimination has been intended. If the act focused on actually denying you liberty due to a conscious, attempt to discriminate. Of course, such cases are legally complicated in that they rely on past cases and the outcomes of such cases, constitutional law, and the interpretation of the constitution.
Facing discriminatory intent can be very intimidating for an individual who is in essence attempting to battle the government. It is very difficult to fight such a case on your own and to determine its worthiness and viability. It is very important for plaintiffs to be properly represented by a knowledgeable and experienced civil rights lawyer.
