Police Accountability

Bernie Kliena Police Accountability InjusticeAttorneys at Relman, Dane & Colfax have extensive experience bringing civil cases on behalf of victims of police misconduct.  For example, our attorneys have litigated cases regarding the racially motivated arrest and prosecution by a drug task force of a group of African Americans, the assault of an immigrant of Arab descent by off-duty police officers, and an unconstitutional strip search.  The Firm has also provided monitoring of a consent decree with a police department.  We bring claims for violation of the rights under the United States Constitution to equal protection under the law, to due process, to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as claims for unlawful arrest or imprisonment and malicious prosecution.  The firm does not provide criminal defense representation, but instead represents individuals in pursuing their civil rights.
