Litigation is the process in which a person begins a civil lawsuit. This process involves various stages that lead to a court trial to find the solution to a particular matter.
Before any lawsuit is filed, a plaintiff, who is the person considering the lawsuit, demands that the individual who caused the damage, the defendant, performs some actions to resolve the conflict between them. If by any case the request from the plaintiff is ignored, he or she may start the lawsuit by serving some copies of the complaint and summons on the defendant by filing a case with the civil trial court.
The complaint is expected to state the alleged injuries and give them to the defendant. He/she can make a request for monetary compensation for the damages or a compensation relief. When both the complaint and defendant fail to come up with a solution to the issue, the plaintiff begins a discovery process. It involves sending the defendant some written interrogatories to seek some information concerning the issue. The plaintiff is allowed to dispose of the defendant by serving a court order. The discovery process is to be determined by the cooperation between both parties.
Trials are made when both sides cannot solve their issues. Once a decision is made at the trial court, the losing party may appeal against the ruling within a given period. When the ruling is final, litigation ends. The winning party receives remedies from the party that lost.
