My question involves civil rights in the State of: Ohio.
Is it possible to get a false psychiatric diagnosis expunged from my record on due process grounds? I was forced into a mental institution as a domestic violence victim in order to discredit me. From all I can tell, I was deprived due process through the course of getting the initial court order (there was no hearing, or mental evaluation before the order was granted). Further, I was deprived due process prior to the probable cause hearing at the hospital (threatened with retaliation if I contested the commital, was provided a lawyer that gave me fraudulent advice, told that the judge would rule against me by default, unlawfully threatened with homelessness if I won).
I want the record expunged. I can prove the basis for the diagnosis false.
Is this a matter of suing under 42 U.S.C. 1983 for a due process breach, citing all the ways in which I was deprived due process in the complaint, and then asking for expungement of the record in my prayer for relief section?
Let me know what the legal course of action would be. I've read cases with people petitioning for expungement alleging a breach of 42 USC 1983...
