  1. Unless your friend is a law school student, he or she will never be able to sue the police without an attorney. The police have an army of lawyers to defend them in court, and those lawyers would eat your friend for breakfast.

    If your friend has a legitimate lawsuit, an attorney will take it on a contingency fee basis (no fee up front, a percentage of the winnings if you win, no fee at all if you lose.) If your friend is just mad at the cops but has no real basis for a lawsuit, the attorney will tell him that too.

    You can get the correct small claims lawsuit forms online or at the courthouse.

  2. Believe this is more money than is awarded in small claims court. Also – something to think about – never sue the police when you still live where they can get you – move to another state first.
