A civil court is where lawsuits are disputed and decided upon either by a judge or a judge and jury. It differs from a criminal court in that criminal matters are not tried there, and the lawsuit must be brought upon by a citizen or group acting on their own, not by a District Attorney or Crown Prosecutor, for example. It is for more "private" matters, not public matters such as crimes against the community. Civil cases are voluntary brought about, whereas it is the legal duty of the government to apply criminal charges when a serious offence is committed.
Some of the funniest, most entertaining moments in cinematic history emerged from 'The Court Jester', a charming little 1956 film that was good for people of all ages. Let's recall some things about this fine film together...good luck!
