The Supreme Court has held that one of the substantive elements of the Due Process Clause protects those rights that are fundamental--rights that are implicit in the concept of ordered liberty, and has, over time, held that virtually all of the Bill of Rights protect such fundamental rights and has likewise held that they apply to the states through the "liberty" interest of the Due Process Clause. [50] However, the Court has held that when a specific provision within the Bill of Rights already provides protection, the more generalized notion of due process should not be used to define constitutional rights. [51] In addition to providing a remedy for deprivations of constitutional rights, section 1983 also makes actionable violations of federal "Laws." [52] A violation of a federal statute is cognizable only when the violation trammels a right secured by federal law. [53] However, a statute is said to create a federal right only when "the provision in question is intended to benefit the putative plaintiff," [54] unless it reflects merely a congressional preference for a certain kind of conduct rather than a binding obligation on the government unit, [55] or unless the putative plaintiff's interest is too vague and amorphous such that it is beyond the competence of the judiciary to enforce. [56] (v) ". .. shall be liable. .. in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress. .. " There is no requirement that the plaintiff sue in federal court because state courts have concurrent jurisdiction, [57] and the usual rule is exhaustion of administrative and judicial state remedies is not a prerequisite to a section 1983 action. [58] Also, the existence of concurrent state remedies is not a bar to a section 1983 action. [59] With respect to the extent of damages available, the Supreme Court has noted that the basic purpose of a section 1983 damages award is to compensate the victims of official misconduct, and therefore held that there is no limit on actual damages if they can be proven. [60] But where they are not proved, only nominal damages of $1.00 may be awarded. [61] Punitive damages may also be awarded, but not against a municipality. [62] Injunctive relief is also permitted. [63] States and state agencies are entitled to Eleventh Amendment immunity in federal court, [64] but local governments have no immunity from damages flowing from their constitutional violations, and may not assert the good faith of its agents as a defense to liability. [65] Further, state law sovereign immunity and state law limitations on damages do not protect local governments from liability under section 1983, [66] and state laws requiring pre-suit notification prior to initiating an action against the state or its subdivisions similarly do not apply. [67] Therefore, local governments are left in the unique and unhappy situation of being subject to suit without the benefit of any form of immunity.
