What is the St. of Limitations in Florida for a civil rights lawsuit which also has a psychologist that will be sued as well?

Truthfully, from the facts you present I'm not seeing the basis for a civil rights claim. Perhaps you may have some claim. Generally, though as with anything exceptions exists, a civil rights lawsuit under section 1983 of the Civil Rights Act must be brought within 2 years of the accrual (generally the occurrence) of the basis for the cause of action.
I agree with Mr. Rafter that it wouldn't be a waste of time and money for you to consult with a local attorney to get the answers you need to make your decision. A consultation might run you $200 or so, but at least you'll be better informed and hopefully have some peace of mind.

It would not be a waste of your time and money for you to sit down with the civil rights attorney in your area. There's no way of knowing whether you even have a case from what you posted here.depending a run happen to you may have any number of different theories of the case, one of which could be civil rights.
