Litigation Members Brian Hill and John Eustice authored the Washington, DC chapter in the International Comparative Legal Guide to: Litigation and Dispute Resolution 2017. This guide provides global legal analysis of the laws and regulations of litigation and dispute resolution in a comprehensive question and answer format. In their chapter, Hill and Eustice address litigation and dispute resolution issues specific to Washington, DC, including the process of commencing proceedings, elements of disclosure, methods of alternative dispute resolution, and how to navigate the District's federal and local court systems. "Washington, D.C. has both a federal and local court system. The United States District Court for the District of Columbia ("District Court") is the federal court for the District of Columbia. The Superior Court of the District of Columbia ("Superior Court") is the local court for the District of Columbia. Both the District Court and Superior Court have similar, but not identical, rules of civil procedure," Hill and Eustice wrote.
