What Are Some Common 14th Amendment Lawsuits?

Many civil lawsuits involve issues that are covered by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This is because the 14th amendment is a particularly broad amendment that covers issues like procedural and substantive due process, citizenship, privileges and immunities of citizens, and other rights. Some common 14th amendment lawsuits may include:

The 14th amendment has been the subject of more lawsuits than any other provision in the U.S. Constitution. Such lawsuits continue today as newer issues arise that are connected with the amendment.

How Are 14th Amendment Lawsuits Resolved?

14th amendment lawsuits tend to involve broad, comprehensive rules or policies that can affect entire sectors of a community. This means that 14th amendment lawsuits can often result in an overhaul or a redoing of company policies, handbooks, and other such measures. For instance, the remedy in an employment discrimination case may require the employer to rewrite company hiring policies in the handbook to reflect a non-discriminatory hiring process.

Also, 14th amendment lawsuits can often be filed as class action lawsuits. These can sometimes lead to very significant damages awards that are issued to members of the class named in the lawsuit. An example of this is where the constitutional rights of a group in the community have been violated.
