Gov’t Liability & Civil Rights

NeunerPate is skilled in the defense of claims against municipalities and other governmental entities. We are familiar with the many unique procedural provisions of government tort laws.

We serve city and parish governments, law enforcement agencies, air and water quality districts, school districts, public service districts, law enforcement officers and public utilities.

The range of legal issues we have addressed includes cases involving voting rights; zoning; shootings by police officers; detainment by unreasonable force; civil rights violations; litigation from the Sugar Cane Festival riot; as well as ongoing litigation on behalf of the Levy district from thousands of cases from Hurricane Katrina.
