Since general standards of jurisdiction and the right to notice and opportunity to be heard have been disposed of. it is time to begin a discussion of the actual litigation process beginning with the filing of the plaintiff’s complaint. Please note that this is not an all inclusive discussion into every aspect of the litigation process, but it should provide some education into what it entails and what is expected of litigants at each step.


The complaint is the initial pleading in the lawsuit and is filed by the plaintiff. The filing of the complaint essentially “commences” the action. The filing of the complaint is what counts for statute of limitations purposes in specific federal question suits. Global Business Lawyers Nevada Business Lawyers Lovaas & Lehtinen
