Federal judge dismisses lawsuit filed by former Griffith police chief : Griffith News | Eric Stiver- Amendment 14 | Scoop.it
HAMMOND | A lawsuit filed against Griffith leaders by the town's former top cop has been dismissed, federal court records show.
StiverE's insight:

This article explains about a lawsuit filed against a cop. He was actually a chief. Ronald Kofta's employees have violated his due processes by denying him a hearing. Kofta did not make a plausible claim. He even said that officials violated his rights according to the 14th Amendment. Luckily for Kofta, this case has been dismissed. I chose this article because it shows a good example on how an amendment was violated.
