My question involves court procedures for the state of: California
I was falsely accused earlier this year. I went through the whole court process and was acquitted. My civil rights were violated (4th and 14th) among many other things. I visited a civil attorney and I was told my case would be in the settlements of a multi million dollars. My problem is that he told me that it could cost me $100,000 up to the summary judgment. I don’t have anymore money after paying my defense attorney near $250,000. I was told my chances of getting pass a summary judgment would be only 25%, after that everything would be in our favor. The attorney was looking for some type of “malice” for my arrest, unfortunately there is none that we can find. Is there another angle to up the odds in getting pass a summary judgment, is there attorney’s that would take this case on contingency. Please Help….. I’m filing a Tort Claim this week.
