How long does a civil lawsuit last or take to resolve?

The length of any matter depends on the complexity of the case, the number of parties involved, whether a reasonable settlement can be reached, and the forum (i.e., state court or federal court, and how busy a particular court or judge is). Timelines range from months to years.
