New Jersey and Federal Civil Rights actions involve very complex areas of law, and any person who believes they may have a New Jersey or Federal Civil Rights cause of action should seek the advice of an attorney immediately. As a general overview, a New Jersey Civil Rights violation can lead to a legal cause of action against New Jersey police officers, a government employee, a governmental agency, or any individual/agency acting under color of law. Such a civil cause of action is usually brought by a plaintiff against a New Jersey police officer, their department, any supervising governmental agency, or any individual acting under color of law. A New Jersey civil rights cause of action can be brought under the New Jersey Civil Rights Act and/or the Federal Civil Rights Act.
Under the New Jersey Civil Rights Act, N.J.S.A. 10:6-1 and 2, any person who has been deprived of any substantive due process or equal protection rights, privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or any substantive rights, privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution or laws of this State, or whose exercise or enjoyment of those substantive rights, privileges or immunities has been interfered with or attempted to be interfered with, by threats, intimidation or coercion by a person acting under color of law, may bring a civil action for damages and for injunctive or other appropriate relief.
