Injured?     (806) 507-0404 mattwittlaw@gmail.com

In a court case there are usually two parties. There is the plaintiff and there is a defendant. As it says in the title a defendant defends themselves in the law suit or they are the ones that are being sued. A plaintiff is the person who brought up the lawsuit and is pursing a case against the defendant. An example would be if the People vs. OJ Simpson. The people of California are the plaintiff and OJ Simpson is the defendant.
