What remedies may be available if there has been a violation of your rights?
When your constitutional and civil rights have been violated, then the law may set forth specific remedies that are available. The particular remedy will depend upon the type of discrimination that occurred. In general, you may have a civil claim for money damages. An attorney can discuss with you the remedies that you should expect to receive.
