1983 actions are based on an old law that still works

We handle cases related to the right of all children to an educationWe also undertake 1983 actions under 42 U.S.C. ?1983. This law, first enacted in 1871, prohibits public officials from violating an individual’s constitutional rights. These cases are complicated by the statutory requirement that actions must be brought against state officials as individuals rather than government departments or jurisdictions.
