A civil lawsuit begins when a plaintiff files a complaint against a defendant. This is followed by a lengthy process called discovery, which involves both sides exchanging information about the case. This is either concluded by a settlement or a trial before a judge or jury. Often, when both parties agree that the case should be handled between them outside the court, they may choose to resolve the dispute through arbitration or mediation.
