Municipal Matters

Municipal litigation involves disputes related to zoning and planning regulations in addition to violations of the Freedom of Information Act and similar issues. Municipal litigation also involves personal injury claims against the local government.

Understanding Municipal Disputes

Municipal lawsuits are different from civil lawsuits because you have to follow a strict set of rules when suing the government. Depending on where you live, you could have between one and six years to file a lawsuit against a person or business. You have a much shorter time limit when you want to file a lawsuit related to municipal matters.

In some cases, you have to file the lawsuit within 30 days if you don’t want to lose your right to collect compensation. The law also requires you to file a notice of claim before you can move your lawsuit forward. Any mistakes in the notice could prompt the court to dismiss your case before it gets off the ground.
