Litigation is the process of bringing a legal dispute to court.  Depending on the size of the claim, the action will be brought in either the Magistrate's, County or Supreme Courts, if within Victoria.  Disputes under federal legislation are determined by the Federal Court.

The party bringing a civil claim (as opposed to a criminal prosecution) is known as the plaintiff and the opposing party is the defendant.  The matter may be adjudicated by a judge or jury, depending on the nature of the claim.
