Who files or initiated the complaint?
Most civil cases are started by one party (the party suing, called the “plaintiff”) filing a “complaint” with the court. A “complaint” is a document that describes what the plaintiff wants (money or some other type of relief) and why she believes she is entitled to that relief.

Even if you have already answered some questions, you can refuse to answer other questions until you have a lawyer.
