Public Interest Litigation

In addition to pursuing class and other claims, the attorneys at Audet & Partners, llp continue to pursue claims for the ‘public good’ that benefit the general public. While many of the firm’s cases have a significant benefit to the general public, the firm’s privacy, civil rights, nuisance and other related cases provide a direct benefit to consumers, small businesses and at the same time provide indirect benefits to others as well. In the past, the firm has filed and successfully litigated, by way of settlement verdicts and agreements or trials, civil rights cases, challenges to improper governmental actions, nuisance and trespass claims. Furthermore, the firm has been involved in cases that obtained significant restitution payments to state and local entities, and has obtained significant cypress recoveries that ultimately provide funding for clinics, food banks and other worthy causes.

In these and other cases, the primary goal of the firm is to assist underrepresented people or causes. While most of the firm’s cases involve claims with broader social issues, in the firm’s public interest litigation, the emphasis is almost solely on the public’s interest and protection of constitutional and other rights. The firm’s past impact public interest litigation has provided significant benefits to the general public.
