Lawsuits explained – Part 6 of 8
In our examination of the three basic component parts of a business lawsuit in Florida we have analyzed the pleadings phase and the discovery phases. The pleadings phase is essentially where the parties put their cards on the table so to speak and define what the dispute is about. The discovery phase is where the parties exchange and obtain information and take depositions to both verify their claims and to disclose to the other what their claims are based upon.
We now proceed to the third phase in a business lawsuit in Florida, which is the conclusion or resolution of the dispute in some form or another. Most commonly thought of is the trial, but before that can occur the parties must mediate, which can often lead to a settlement. Therefore, the first possibilities we will examine are settlement and mediation.
