More law on suing corrupt government officials under 42 USC sec. 1983

See Monell v. Department of Soc. Svcs. – 436 U.S. 658 (1978)stating, “Local governing bodies (and local officials sued in their official capacities) can, therefore, be sued directly under § 1983 for monetary, declaratory, and injunctive relief in those situations where, as here, the action that is alleged to be unconstitutional implements or executes a policy statement, ordinance, regulation, or decision officially adopted or promulgated by those whose edicts or acts may fairly be said to represent official policy. In addition, local governments, like every other § 1983 “person,” may be sued for constitutional deprivations visited pursuant to governmental “custom” even though such custom has not received formal approval through the government’s official decision making channels. Pp. 436 U. S. 690-691.” – See more at: http://www.corruptwa.com/contact-us/#sthash.07JlFvsU.bTwoPJsy.dpuf
