Constitutional Law

The Law Office of David F. Rutledge, LLC handles a wide range of constitutional law claims including: invasion of privacy, unconstitutional searches and seizures, due process, excessive force, and the First Amendment.

Constitutional Rights protect people from certain acts performed by federal and state governments, including local governments and agencies. Therefore, it is important to understand that generally a violation of an individual’s constitutional right(s) is only triggered when the government or governmental agency is the one doing the act or doing the censoring, not when it is being perpetrated by another individual or private company/entity.
