What can I do if the police violated my 4th amendment rights?

Question Details:

Someone threw a house party and the cops showed up. The house was locked with 6 of us inside; all lights were out. The officers knocked for awhile with no one inside answering. Finally the officer broke the door down and came in and arrested all 6 people. When later questioned if he had the right to bust the door down, he said we heard there was fighting going on inside the house. Yet obviously no fighting was going on. Was he in his legal right or has my fourth amendment been violated?
