Family claims Third Amendment violation

2013-07-14

Third Amendment violations are fortunately ones you don’t see every day. The lesser known of the first three amendments prohibits quartering soldiers in a private home. A Las Vegas family filed a lawsuit based on a July 2011 domestic violence call, unrelated to the family, where police wanted to use the complainant’s home for surveillance.

When denied the request the officers allegedly conspired to make the plaintiff leave his house otherwise arrest him for obstruction. What followed included a militarized assault on his house, battering his front door with a metal ram, and firing ‘pepperball’ rounds at the victim as well as his submissive dog as he lay defenseless on the floor. Officers then arrested him for obstructing a police officer and conducted an unlawful search of his property before using his private property for their own surveillance purposes.

This case seeks damages for violations of the third, fourth, and 14th Amendments, assault and battery, conspiracy, defamation, abuse of process, malicious prosecution, negligence and emotional distress.
