Migliaccio & Rathod LLP has proven willing and equipped to safeguard the civil rights of persons subjected to unconstitutional policies, including unreasonable searches and cruel and unusual punishments.
In a current case, Hill v. County of Montgomery, our firm is representing individuals placed into custody of Montgomery County Jail who have been denied adequate food and nutrition. Plaintiffs have suffered symptoms of malnutrition and scurvy, including severe weight loss, hair loss, skin rashes and other debilitating symptoms. Among many violations, this treatment goes against the Eighth Amendment, which protects citizens from cruel and unusual punishments.
Our firm is also working to preserve the rights of individuals against unreasonable searches and seizures. We are currently pursuing a case on behalf of females admitted to Franklin County Corrections Center Two, that underwent unconstitutional documentation of tattoos on their private parts. These women were admitted for failure to pay fines, city code violations, traffic infractions, and other minor crimes. There is a balance that must be met of the need for a search, photography documentation in this case, against the invasion of personal rights. Given mild violations these females were detained for, the County violated the Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens against unreasonable searches and seizures.
