What Is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation is the process in which civil matters are resolved in a court of law. Civil matters can be described as situations dealing with relationships between people, such as a marriage, or a contract dispute between corporations. Rather than a case being a person versus the government, as in a criminal matter, civil cases are an individual or business filing suit against another individual or business.
