We’ve all heard somebody in distress or in a moment of frustration say “I’m going to sue you.”
Well what does that really entail? It is a matter of principle and principal.
If you are going to go into civil litigation on principle we must let you know how much principal it will cost. Usually civil litigation is very costly. In North Dakota and Minnesota there are other kinds of civil litigation. There is Small Claims in North Dakota and Conciliation in Minnesota which is anything under $15,000.
One thing no to do when it comes to civil litigation is sue for pride, hurt feelings, or something like a mild inconvenience. You need damages and they need to be reflected in your summons and complaint. Damages are typically in the form of money.
If it is something that you really are ready to take a stand on, talk to us so we can have that difficult conversation. We can tell you if it is more appropriate for Small Claims in North Dakota or Conciliation Court in Minnesota.
If you have a big case and it’s something that you should really consider pursuing, give us a call 701-775- 0654.
