Lawsuits Against Corporations

Filing False Claims Against Corporations – Why Corporate Interests Can Sue Out-of-State Plaintiffs For Filing Fraudulent Lawsuits

We often hear the term “corporate citizen” and “suicide lawsuits” often, but what exactly are these? What is a lawsuit and how do lawsuits against corporations actually work? The simple definition of a lawsuit is an action brought by an individual or group claiming damages due to another person’s or entity’s negligence. For example, a person can file a lawsuit against a car manufacturer if the car he/she bought caused him/her physical harm. The damages claimed in this type of lawsuit are usually measured in terms of financial loss.

The car manufacturer will then have to answer the complaint.

They do this through the civil justice system in the local or county courthouse. This can take a very long time depending on the amount of damage claimed, the amount of people killed or injured, etc. Sometimes, people die as a result of these lawsuits. That’s why the insurance companies are always watching the civil justice system for any potential lawsuits of this nature.

You can bring lawsuits against corporations all by yourself, if you have enough proof.

However, that doesn’t always happen. Often, corporations will settle with the complainants in exchange for not going to court. Sometimes, they will go so far as to offer out compensation to those who lose their lives as a result of their injuries. The evidence required in order to get the kind of settlement that most people die in these lawsuits usually requires extensive interviewing of witnesses, research on medical records, and sometimes even trial.

The problem with these lawsuits is that there isn’t anyone higher than the state courts who can decide on the merits of the complaint.

That’s because the Federalistricting process has caused many states to create super-divisions where a majority of citizens live in a small area. Because these areas are so gerrymandered, there are very few cases filed in state courts. Most people who file lawsuits against corporations don’t even know that they can sue these corporations in state courts. It usually takes them to one or two courts in a highly populated state, like New York or California, where the litigation might be worth pursuing. But, if you’re a resident of a small town in Mississippi, filing a lawsuit against a corporation in the state court is completely impossible.

The way around this problem is for plaintiffs in Mississippi to move their lawsuits to federal court.

There, a lawsuit against a corporation is always possible, because the corporation is almost certainly an out-of-state entity. If it isn’t, then the plaintiff will probably need to file a lawsuit against the owners, shareholders, and officers of the corporation in the county where the corporation is incorporated. Most plaintiffs cannot win a lawsuit in state court for this reason.

Fortunately, however, the Supreme Court has ruled that it is the federal government’s responsibility to ensure that all Americans have access to timely remedies for all their claims against corporations.

This means that, in the unlikely event that a corporation files a frivolous lawsuit against an individual, it is the federal government that will make the decision whether or not to drop the charges. Therefore, filing a frivolous lawsuit against a corporation is not worth your time. Wise plaintiffs will instead work to ensure that the government does what it can to help keep corporations from taking advantage of their citizens by filing frivolous lawsuits in a process designed to provide justice.
