    Asserting our civil rights goes to the heart of what it means to be an American, but unfortunately, our property, liberty, and even life can be sacrificed when we exercise these fundamental rights. Lawyers are needed to assist when authority figures wrongfully attempt to deny us those rights, and to obtain relief for injuries we have suffered in the process.
     
    The potentially relevant fields of law are vast, and this book focuses on finding potential answers for many problems faced by today's civil rights plaintiffs and their counsel. In three sections, it highlights some important tools and strategies offered by the litigation process and alternate dispute resolution mechanisms, including:
    • Foundations of Civil Rights: The Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments
    • Discrimination Due to Sexual Orientation
    • Litigation: Due Diligence, Practice Tips, Forming Your Case, Motion Practice, and Discovery
    • The New Guerilla Warfare of Civil Rights
    • The Media
    • Technology, and much more.
    The legal actions and complaints which have arisen and will continue to arise from the civil rights causes and movements of today may bear many factual similarities to your own cases. We should all keep constant tabs on the progress of these movements, because each of their victories will likely create more victories for our own clients. We can also learn from the failuresif the civil rights parties lost, why was that so? Civil Rights Litigation is a step toward sharing information and cooperation between everyone who supports civil rights, including the separate movements, attorneys, their clients, and the general public.
