Mixed Questions of Law and Fact: Monday, August 18, 2014

Posted by William MacDonald on August 18, 2014

The new school year brings the return of our daily feature, “Mixed Questions of Law and Fact”.

Learning to think like a lawyer is not just about memorizing your torts outline or mastering IRAC — it’s also about gradually mastering the nuances of communication, reasoning, history, and jurisprudence. Every day, every little bit helps. That is why we are offering daily Mixed Questions of Law and Fact. Come to the ASP Blog each day for a new question that tests your knowledge of — or teaches you something about — logic, grammar, vocabulary, legal history, and, of course, the law. Pick the answer you think is correct and send it in an e-mail to us at Everyone who sends us an answer to at least four questions by midnight on Friday at the end of the week will receive one ASP Achievement Club point — and those who accumulate 10 points by the end of the semester will be eligible for our prize drawing! You can send all your answers for the week in one e-mail if you like, but you must spell out your choice of answer — not simply pick a letter or number — so we know you read the question! Good luck, and have fun!

Today’s question is:

How do you start a civil action?

  1. File a complaint
  2. Make a motion
  3. Submit a demand letter
  4. Send a subpoena
