What is a Civil Suit?

Posted by Frederic Abramson | Jan 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

If the plaintiff is successful in their civil action — such that the court rules that the defendant is liable for legitimate damages — the defendant is then required by law to pay restitution to the plaintiff, usually in the form of money damages.
