Yes and that happens more often than people know. Let's say you have federal and state causes of action and the federal one does not shut out the state one (some federal laws do under the "supremacy" clause of the US constitution).

One other major way is through "diversity of jurisdiction" where you're in one state and the defendant is in another… Read More
