Alleged torts or breaches of contract, but not crimes. Action is brought by one individual against another at the litigant's own expense, within the statute of limitations. The losing party must pay any judgment plus court expenses. Casualty insurance provides coverage for an insured in a civil liability suit for alleged negligent acts or omissions, even if the suit is without foundation.
