Key legal terms and phrases (to file ...)

Today, one of the basic, yet often forgotten legal phrases:

to file a lawsuit ... in a court

a lawsuit is a document that you submit in a court of law.

we can say:

to file a lawsuit in a district court,


the claimant has filed a lawsuit in the county court

The synonym phrases are:

to file a claim in a court of law
