CIVIL RIGHTS

All persons in the United States have the right to be free from government abuse, misconduct and the unfair application of the law.  When these rights are violated, the Civil Rights Act and other laws empower civilians to sue government actors and their agencies for their wrongs and atrocities.  In fact, this is a way that civilians can force governments and their agents to be held accountable for their misconduct and change official policies and practices.

Relief for civil rights violations usually comes in the form of money damages, known as compensatory and punitive damages.  Compensatory damages are compensation for losses that are suffered.  Punitive damages punish officials for their actions and are awarded in cases of gross misconduct.
