Multidistrict litigation, or MDL, has two defining factors: (1) only for civil cases, and (2) must be brought in federal court. The Federal court system uses this method to save time and resources but also to have consistent court rulings for separate lawsuits that involve vastly similar issues.
Multidistrict litigation is the process of simplifying complex civil lawsuits that arise out of the same course of conduct across multiple court districts to one federal district court.
