    If you got an ACD dismissal it does not mean you were not guilty, it means they gave yo a break. Even if you were innocent and you were falsely accused and arrested without probable cause, you could only get a lawyer to take the case if there were actual monetary damages or if you spent tie in jail. You can always sue in small claims court if you think they did something wrong.

    This depends on all the facts but the answer is maybe. Sit down and talk to an attorney.

    To provide a proper answer, all of the facts surrounding the arrest and subsequent dismissal would need to be reviewed. You should consult with an attorney who, after proper review, could advise you of your options.

    This is not a criminal question but a civil one. The short answer is probably, yes.

    Can you sue? Of course. But I think the question you're really asking is whether you have a good case or not. That would depend on many factors and would require a lot more detail that what you have provided. Your type of question is not well-suited to be answered by free legal advice on the internet. Contact some employment law attorneys in your area and set up a consultation.
