In civil litigation, the commencement of a lawsuit involves the plaintiff filing a complaint in state or federal court and serving the defendant with the complaint and summons. After the defendant is served, the defendant has a limited amount of time to file an answer, counterclaim, and/or cross claim. These various documents are referred to as pleadings and are addressed under Trial Rule 7.
