The article explains the concept of litigation and the process of settling a litigation. Litigation is the process of settling a dispute by recourse to legal proceedings. By embarking on litigation they explicitly accept that if their legal advisors are unable to resolve the matter by further argument and negotiation, eventually a Civil Court will adjudicate on the merits of the case and decide on the value of any settlement. Money, ownership of property of one kind and another, inheritance, breaches of contract, the proper conduct of business matters, and one party's rights and responsibilities toward another are all front runners in the litigation derby.
