Civil cases involve conflicts between people or institutions such as businesses and manufacturers. A civil case usually begins when a person or organization decides a problem can’t be solved without the intervention of the courts. In civil cases, one (or more) of these persons or organizations files a complaint in court that starts a lawsuit. Divorce and related lawsuits such as child support, custody, property disputes and family law, make up large number of civil cases. Automobile collisions are another common kind of civil case accounting for many personal injury cases, also referred to as “tort” cases. Cases involving contracts are also frequent.
An appeal is not a retrial or a new trial of the case. The appeals courts do not usually consider new witnesses or new evidence. Appeals in either civil or criminal cases are usually based on arguments that there were errors in the trial’s procedure or errors in the judge’s interpretation of the law.
