Brief Filed Defending Right to Sue Based on Fourth Amendment

Yesterday, the American Thinker published Jeremiah Morgan’s article about the amicus brief we filed in Manuel v. City of Joliet. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in this case tomorrow, Wednesday, October 5. The article explains why victims of police misconduct should be able to bring a Fourth Amendment-based suit when police fabricate evidence to obtain an indictment.

    I am a Trustee and sole beneficiary of The Manuel J Cardoza Estate and also the Trust.My friend died on June 11, 2011. A daughter who was named in the Will “as NOT to receive any benefits of the Estate, broke into my New Hampshire home and stole the Title of a vehicle belonging to the Trust and also the Title for a Florida mobile home. Police were called by a neighbor and found the daughter and her husband had broken into the home. They did some minor damage. The Police did not make an arrest. The husband is a Sheriff deputy and works in the Nashua, NH Court House. The daughter and her deputy husband went to Fruitland Park, Florida and broke into a second home and upon leaving the premises, stole a vehicle belonging to the Trust. If a Florida lawyer in Lake County would like to represent the Trust, please contact me

    There is an increase in criminal acts by law enforcement recently. I can’t get NH and Florida law enforcement to make an arrest or even investigate. I asked my Senator to report this to the FBI and I never received their response. I contacted
    Senator Susan Collins, The Chairman of The Senate Committee on Aging and did not receive any help. I am 80 years old and recently had a quadruple bypass.I cannot afford an attorney until I recover the Assets and sell them. The Trust Assets are valued at $89,000.00. The deputy and his wife stole the vehicle.
    I would be grateful to any Florida law firm that would recover the three assets.
    Call me and I will mail a copy of The Will and The Trust to you. 603 882-1519
