Conflict of Laws

Definition - What does Conflict of Laws mean?

Conflict of law refers to a situation where both federal and state laws, laws of different states, or different courts are in somewhat of a conflict or disagreement in terms of a particular lawsuit. Plaintiff’s lawyer in such a situation decides in which court or state the case should be filed. However, a defendant can file a response that asks for the court to move the case.
