dc.description.abstract Two observations proceed from the recognition that the same conduct may be the basis for both a tort action and a civil rights action against the government. First, state efforts to protect their treasuries are undermined to the extent that federal law gives a right to damages for constitutional deprivations. Second, some confusion about the nature of the federal civil rights action is inevitable. In fact, a prominent feature of section 1983 litigation is the relationship between the federal remedy for constitutional deprivations and state law remedies that redress tortuous conduct. That relationship is the general subject of this article. en_US
