A lawsuit or suit in law is a civil action brought in a court of law in which a plaintiff, a party who claims to have incurred damages as a result of a defendant’s actions, demands a legal or equitable remedy. The defendant is required to respond to the plaintiff’s complaint. If the plaintiff is successful, judgment will be given in the plaintiff’s favor, and a variety of court orders may be issued to enforce a right award damages. Or impose an injunction to prevent and act. A declaratory judgment may be issued to prevent future legal disputes.
