How to File for a Civil Dispute
To start the civil dispute process, you must prepare and file a pleading to the court, explaining your side of the situation with the facts. A copy must be presented to the party you hold liable for the process to move forward to litigation. Civil disputes range from tort claims and breach of contract claims to landlord or tenant issues and equitable claims.
Civil Law Cases and Standard of Proof
The winner of civil law cases usually gains the upper hand based on the quality of the standard of proof he or she collects and presents. Large quantities of evidence do not trump key pieces of convincing evidence in civil law cases. The judge or jury must simply decide if the evidence both sides have presented backs up the facts in favor of one party or the other. Unlike its criminal law counterpart, civil law cases are determined on the most likely probability of truth.
Components of Negligence Law
