Civil Rights

Civil Rights goes far beyond discrimination and the right to vote. When the government says it will no longer issue building permits and your property becomes worthless, that is a violation of your civil rights. When a commercial fisherman’s catch complies with federal regulations in federal waters, but state or local authorities say you are in violation of state regulations that is a violation of your civil rights.

The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights guarantees personal freedoms and limits the government’s power. The Constitution states that no one can be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law and just compensation paid. Any action by government depriving someone of a constitutional right is a civil rights violation.
