im not sure but i think u have to file it in their homestate but please dont quote me on that You'll need to file the lawsuit in the state where the actionable offense took place. For instance, if you bought a car in the other person's state but now find it won't run while you're living in your state, you need to file in the state in which you bought the car. The suit has to be filed where the wrong ocurred.

A civil prosecution is a procedure that follows a civil lawsuit. This can be utilized if a party is not satisfied with how a civil lawsuit was handled.

Anyone who wants to file one can file a civil lawsuit in the United States. Usually a person sees a lawyer and has the lawyer file the lawsuit. If it is not well written, done in the proper manner, and the details are not properly taken care of, it will be useless. In that case, the person is out his filing fee.

In civil law, the party who is served with the papers beginning the civil action, and is defending the lawsuit is called the "defendant"; the party who brings the lawsuit is called the "plaintiff". In the strictest sense, the person in a criminal 'lawsuit' not a civil proceeding, is called a "defendant". The party, in the criminal action, who brings the lawsuit, a criminal proceeding, is called the "State". The representative for the criminal action against the is a Prosecutor. Please see the discussion page for further notions about using the word "defendant" instead of the label "accused" in a criminal proceeding.

There is no such thing as a criminal lawsuit. Criminal prosecutions are brought by the state through the appropriate prosecution, and are not called lawsuits. Lawsuits are civil suits, that are, by definition, not criminal.

Negligence is a tort or civil wrongdoing in which a person or entity acts irresponsibly or "negligently" and that action results in serious injury or death of another person. The attached law article explains negligence further and the elements involved in proving negligence during a lawsuit.

A person or Party begins a civil case against another party by a complaint being introduced. This complaint must be shown to the Court House where it is decided to be ruled or not. To begin a civil case or complaint against another party, the complainant/plaintiff must file a lawsuit/complaint in court to initiate the case. This would also involve paying the proper filing fees and yes, often, a lawyer would be necessary in order to prepare your pleading.
