The civil rules of procedure allow for the, “just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action.” They help facilitate the court process to ensure that the same procedures are followed in each civil case and no side receives an advantage over the other. They additionally help cases to move through the litigation process in a timely manner.
There are different procedural rules that must be adhered to for criminal cases and other courts.
Additionally, the local superior court where a case is filed may have its own rules of civil procedure that must be followed. Many of superior courts in Washington have the local court rules posted on their website. If you are unable to find the local court rules, then you should contact the local superior court clerk’s office where a civil case is to be file, to see if they can provide you with a copy of the local rules or where to find the local rules.
The Superior Court Civil rules that govern the scope and form of action governed by these rules is as follows:
RULE CR 1: SCOPE OF RULES
These rules govern the procedure in the superior court in all suits of a civil nature whether cognizable as cases at law or in equity with the exceptions stated in rule 81. They shall be construed and administered to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action.
