Garnet v. Morshedian (22-CV-23543-RKA) Posted 11/17/2022

The Plaintiff, Malvin Garnet, has filed a civil-rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against seven Defendants who were involved in his family-court case: the state-court judge, a magistrate, a mental-health worker, a court reporter, and several attorneys. Garnet alleges that, during his family-court case in Miami-Dade County, the Defendants withheld evidence, perjured themselves, and discriminated against him on the basis of race. As a result, Garnet says, he didn’t see his child for two years. And, Garnet adds, because of one Defendant’s false sexual-assault allegations against him—which he had to report to his employer—he couldn’t work for some time. Garnet seeks (1) damages for emotional distress; (2) compensation for his and his daughter’s therapy bills; (3) attorneys’ fees; and (4) several injunctions. The Defendants have not yet been served.
