The Importance of Civil Court 

Civil court is a government institution that settles disputes between two or more entities.  Civil court cases may involve any combination of private citizens, businesses, government institutions, or other parties.

Typically, the function of a civil court is to determine liability of one party for the injuries, which do not necessarily need to be of a physical nature, that are suffered by another party.



Why You Should Care about the Civil Court?  

A civil court judge handles legal disputes that are not crimes. In the United States, all such legal matters are handled by judges, attorneys, and law firms that focus on specific areas of non-criminal law, such as patent law or divorce litigation. In civil cases, there is not a prosecution by the government. Rather, the plaintiff, a person, group, business, institution, or a government body, brings a claim of harm against the defendant, another person or group. Among the many types of civil courts, we include personal injury, medical malpractice, torts, traffic court, bankruptcy, adoption and family court, business issues, and many others.ndividuals charged with dispensing justice in our society have a direct impact on civil rights protections for all.

A judge that handles such cases must be the embodiment of fairness and impartiality.
