I'd say this gentleman may very well have a good case against all parties who infringed upon his rights.
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
WE, the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, and humbly invoking
, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
That the general, great and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and unalterably established
, WE DECLARE THAT
Inherent Rights of Mankind
All men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights
, among which are those of enjoying and
defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.
All power is inherent in the people
, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their peace, safety and
happiness. For the advancement of these ends they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish their
government in such manner as they may think proper.
All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences
; no man can of right
be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship or to maintain any ministry against his consent; no human authority can, in any
case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience
, and no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious
establishments or modes of worship.
Trial by Jury
Trial by jury shall be as heretofore, and the right thereof remain inviolate
. The General assembly may provide, however, by law, that a
verdict may be rendered by not less than five-sixths of the jury in any civil case.
Freedom of Press and Speech; Libels
The printing press shall be free to every person who may undertake to examine the proceedings of the Legislature or any branch of government, and no
law shall ever be made to restrain the right thereof. The free communication of thoughts and opinions is one of the invaluable rights of man, and
every citizen may freely speak, write and print on any subject, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty.
No conviction shall be had in any
prosecution for the publication of papers relating to the official conduct of officers or men in public capacity, or to any other matter proper for
public investigation or information, where the fact that such publication was not maliciously or negligently made shall be established to the
satisfaction of the jury; and in all indictments for libels the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the facts, under the direction of
the court, as in other cases.
Security From Searches and Seizures
The people shall be secure in their persons, houses, papers and possessions from unreasonable searches and seizures, and no warrant to search any
place or to seize any person or things shall issue without describing them as nearly as may be, nor without probable cause, supported by oath or
affirmation subscribed by the affiant.
Right to Bear Arms
The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.
Reservation of Powers in People
To guard against the transgressions of the high powers
which we have delegated, we declare that everything in this article is excepted
out of the general powers of government and shall forever remain inviolate.
