Can i sue the city police or the mayor himself?

The mayor of the town i live in has a problem with me, and i dont know what it is but, i moved my horses into my place that happens to be in his neighborhood. he started out accusing me of all sorts of stuff, of course he had a few police officers behind him since he could have them fired. It ended up he and the police chief got an officer to write us tickets for cruelty to animals. which was proven to be a crock of crap. I hired a veternarian to check the situation out that they had complained about and she said it was all fine. Cruelty to animals is a very very harsh accusation. The tickets were completely dismissed. Any suggestions on what i can do. this mayor acts like he can do anything to anybody because of his position. i've had my horses several years and yes they are allowed in the city limits. my horses are taken care of very well. he made false accusations and the others went along with him for fear of their jobs.

What exactly would you sue for? Waisted time in court? If you had suffered something more than a nuisance then I'd say go for it. Maybe you can get them to pick up the vet bill, but I bet the lawyer would advise against it. If you just want to try to punish him the go for it as well. But you might find the judge... More

Yes. You could sue for harassment, false arrest as you were given a ticket and had to appear for the charges, and violation or your forth Amendment Rights under the Constitution of the United States. Sue the Mayor and any police that was involved in the Conspiracy, take the money and move to another town.

Ask God to handle it. He sees justice. He's got more power than the Mayor.
