CIVIL RIGHTS, PUBLIC ENTITY AND MUNICIPALITY LAW

Clinton & Clinton has represented cities and public officials against claims involving allegations of civil rights violations under both federal and state law, including major cases involving allegations of police misconduct and municipality liability. The cases also generally include claims under state tort law. The law continues to change as the courts develop the boundaries of government liability, and the firm recognizes the need to follow and shape that development.

The firm is skilled in the defense against police misconduct and other civil rights violations. Clinton & Clinton is knowledgeable regarding the defense of 4th Amendment issues and excessive force, qualified immunity and high profile cases. The firm has experience working with law enforcement and understands the legal and factual evidentiary issues that must be utilized to combat allegations in misconduct litigation. Currently, Clinton & Clinton has been selected to represent a defendant in the high profile Los Angeles police misconduct litigation known as the "Rampart Scandal".

The firm has years of experience in representing public entities including cities, counties, special districts and Joint Powers Authorities with their complex legal needs including litigation. The attorneys are skilled and well versed in a wide range of claims that confront public entities. We have experience in such areas as dangerous conditions to public property, redevelopment, environmental and toxic tort claims, inverse condemnation, land use, public finance law, zoning, school representation, water and sewer issues, and police liability for civil rights violation.
