I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.
My name isXXXXX am a licensed attorney, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
There is actually no set federal statute of limitations for civil rights violations (actions under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983).
Instead the most applicable statute of limitations for the state is used. In the case of a violation of Fourth Amendment Rights, that statute of limitations if for personal injury
in Michigan, which is three years.
The Federal Court
would use the state statute of limitations. You need to file the case in federal court, since there is qualified immunity for local, county, and state police in state court. Additionally, since your cause of action arises under federal law, the federal courts have the primary authority to enforce federal law.
I hope the above information is helpful.
