Judicial officers are protected from suit by judicial immunity.
Regarding the police department, it is possible to sue law enforcement for violation of civil rights - but prosecuting a case that was later deemed to lack sufficient evidence is not necessarily a violation of a constitutional right. You can speak with a local attorney (look for a civil litigation attorney that specializes in what we call "1983" claims - referring to 42 USC 1983 - the federal statute that permits these kinds of lawsuits), most will provide you with a free consultation to review the details of your case, and provide you with a more complete consultation based on the specifics of this evaluation. (The details may provide you with a different answer than my "general information" - not likely answer, and you can determine whether or not it is worth pursuing from there, again, most of these attorneys will at least consult with you free of charge).
