The Supreme Court of the United States typically has a docket filed with difficult cases, these cases can change very little or a huge amount. It is not always easy to tell, some high profile cases have limited effect on the daily lives of citizens, while lower profile cases change life significantly. A case which seems to be under the radar at the moment on the docket is out of Wisconsin and is called Gill v. Whitford.
I am out of town this week and will follow up with a full post next week. Enjoy your day!
In the event someone chooses to go to trial and seeks a remedy, most of the time the result is civil litigation. The process can be complex and difficult. It can be a challenge to go through the system and there are rules which need to be followed. Those rules are called the rules of Civil Procedure.
In business, there are two main types of contracts when interacting with clients. This can be between two businesses or a business and an individual, the form is the same. These agreements are either the sales of goods or the sale of services. Service agreements are governed by the general contract law of the states. Sales for goods are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code
Litigation comes in a variety of different forms. I am not talking about the different reasons people decide to sue, after all there are nearly as many reasons as there are cases currently ongoing. No, there are three main branches of types of cases heard by the courts - criminal, legal, and equitable. Criminal is fairly self explanatory, it is the difference between law and equity where there is some confusion.
