Civil litigation is the legal process involving disputes between parties who seek either monetary compensation or equitable relief. A civil lawsuit may be filed either in state or federal court. General civil litigation as the name implies, applies to a broad range of laws and the associated litigation of civil law. The plaintiff is the person that files a pleading or files a complaint against the defendant. The plaintiff's lawsuit may seek reimbursement for damages, reparations for a breach of contract, compensation for injuries, resolution of business disputes, or a host of other issues to be decided by civil court proceedings.
