In a civil lawsuit, a defendant (or a respondent) is also the accused party, although not of an offense, but of a civil wrong (a tort or a breach of contract, for instance). The person who starts the civil action through filing a summons and complaint is referred to as the plaintiff. Defendants in civil actions usually make their first court appearance voluntarily in response to a summons. A.C.E. Nationwide Process Serving Services serve defendants with the summons and compliant needed to commence a kawsuit. It is this initail step of the legal process that gives the court jurisdiction over the defendant and when the lawsuit actually begins.
