Constitutional Rights Of Protestors.

It is quite common to hear about protestors getting arrested, mistreated, or abused while they exercise their First Amendment rights. While this is illegal and unethical, it also sheds light on the fact that many people are unaware of their protesting rights. Far too often people experience violence and harassment from the police without knowing what their legal rights are. As a result, countless people suffer at the hands of the authorities who are supposed to protect them.

Our civil rights attorneys are committed to advocating for advocates. In other words, we can champion the best interests of those who advocate for a cause or belief. We can help you if you experienced the following situations:

  • You were arrested or cited in connection with a protest
  • You or others were mistreated or interfered with at a protest
  • You or someone you know has been injured at the hands of the police

You should not have to suffer legal consequences and abuse for exercising your constitutional rights. The attorneys at Gerash Steiner are here to help you protect your constitutional rights.

Protestor’s Rights

Any person organizing or participating in a protest should be aware that they have the following rights:

  • The right to peaceably assemble in a public venue.
  • The right to be free of bodily harm, including being subjected to tear gas, pepper spray or rubber bullets.
  • The right to be free from the use of unreasonable force by police officers assigned to a protest.
  • The right to counsel if you are arrested or otherwise cited at the protest.
  • The right to bring a civil action for any misconduct by police officers at the scene of a protest.
  • The right to seek an injunction concerning any unreasonable interference with a protest, or to prevent such interference at future protests.
