Fleeson Gooing has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in cases dealing with the alleged violation of constitutional rights. These cases require an in-depth understanding of not only the substantive law, but also of the unique procedures applicable to the pursuit and defense of constitutional claims. The firm has been involved in state and federal litigation involving civil rights, free speech, search and seizure, excessive force, government takings, equal protection and due process, as well as many other constitutional issues.
Our successful representation of The Gas Service Company before the United States Supreme Court established the constitutional boundaries of federal jurisdiction in class action litigation. We also defended a constitutional challenge to the Kansas college tuition grant program, which ensured the continued availability of certain types of financial aid at the state’s small colleges and universities.
