Civil Rights Law Litigation Support From
Experienced Court Reporting Agencies
Civil rights law is all that the name entails– the rights that keep society free from types of discrimination. These laws state the foundation of this country: all men and women are created equal. They created protected classes of people, so that these people are shielded by the law when others try to discriminate against them based on specific characteristics. It could be anything from protecting restaurants and hotels from treating people differently based on their race, or discriminating against an employee based on gender.
People cannot be discriminated against based on their age, color, marital status, national origin, race, religion, or sex. Many civil rights and constitutional rights overlap, but civil rights have more to do with discrimination of various groups in society by the government and private parties.
Major U.S. Supreme Court civil rights cases
