I see this : A legal case is a dispute between opposing parties resolved by a court, or by some equivalent legal process. A legal case may be either civil or criminal.

in the articles, but I have heard of some admin code procedings as quazi criminal. Can anyone comment?

Hey, there are different ways that legal cases are handled around the world. this article may need to be changed to "US legal cases" or have "US" written throughout the article.Travb 02:09, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

captioning, OR the changing face of court case names[edit]

So, why do court cases change their names? Hollingsworth v. Perry, Perry v. Schwarzenegger, Perry v. Brown are all names for THE SAME CASE, am i right? I would appreciate knowing why the plaintiff and defendant (or respondent or petitioner) sometimes change names, or swap places. Mang (talk) 00:32, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
