Civil Rights Litigation

The attorneys of Spicer Rudstrom have the skill and experience needed for civil rights litigation. It is a unique and complicated area of law. Defending claims can include excessive force, cruel and unusual punishment, unconstitutional policies and procedures, and failure to train. These claims require not only knowledge and understanding of law enforcement duties and the legal system, but also a sense of fairness and confidentiality.

We have successfully represented the interests of municipalities, county jails, state prison facilities, private correctional providers, insurance carriers, and third-party administrators in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, and Kentucky.
