The firm regularly represents Cities, Counties, and School Districts and their employees in many different types of lawsuits in both State and Federal courts.
Our attorneys frequently represent Cities, particularly their police departments and officers, in Section 1983 litigation involving claimed excessive force, unlawful arrest, discrimination, and other constitutional violations. We have attorneys with substantial experience handling the complex immunity and other issues unique to this area of litigation.
Municipal and Governmental Representation
In addition, we also handle general and personal injury litigation in a myriad of areas for governmental entities and their employees. We are familiar with the many issues arising under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and advise clients concerning their responsibilities under the Act.
We periodically provide risk management training and consultation to diverse departments within public organizations and work with our clients to help them function responsibly and efficiently.
