In order to file a legitimate lawsuit there must be an actionable case or controversy. In other word, there must be sufficient evidence, direct or circumstantial, to meet the legal requirements for filing a non-frivolous lawsuit. Should a non-actionable case be filed, and the defendant wins the lawsuit for lack of merit, he/she may file a lawsuit against the filer of the original lawsuit for “malicious prosecution” or “wrongful use of civil proceedings.” This is why, it is very important to seek a thorough case evaluation advice from a Competent Lawyer, prior to filing any claims.
