Civil litigation is the process where two or more private parties (individuals, businesses, government agencies, and other entities) participate in a lawsuit.
Usually, lawsuits are filed to protect an interest, enforce rights, or to obtain monetary or equitable relief for a wrong committed against a person or their property.
A party that files a lawsuit is a Plaintiff while a party that defends a lawsuit is a Defendant.
If you want to file a lawsuit, or if you have been sued, you need to hire an attorney. Civil litigation is complex and can be overwhelming. The civil litigation process is governed by strict deadlines and rules with which litigants must comply.
