Malicious Prosecution

Malicious Prosecution – Civil Rights Violations

Malicious Prosecution is defined as intentionally perusing a legal action, without probable cause, towards a person in which the case was dismissed in favor of that person. In short, a prosecution brought against someone with the intent to harass them. If you feel as though you have been a victim of malicious prosecution, be sure to contact us. However, to successfully file a malicious prosecution lawsuit, four things have to be proven in court.

  1. First, a police officer or government agency perused a legal action, civil or criminal
  2. The legal action ended in favor of the victim
  3. The legal action was brought with malice, or spite
  4. Lastly, there was no probable cause for the officer or agency to bring said legal action to the victim
