    Default Perjury in a Civil Case

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA

    An employer has responded to a lawsuit by denying the allegations that are true. I know the allegations are true. The plaintiff omitted some of the more serious charges for reasons that aren't clear to me. I strongly hate the employer and want to see them pay for lying to the poor plaintiff with an honest complaint. How can I get the employer in trouble for perjury? What could happen if it is found that they lied and committed perjury? Isn't it a felony?

    Default Re: Perjury in a Civil Case

    The plaintiff is entitled to try to prove her allegations in court. If she cannot do so by a preponderance of the evidence, she cannot expect that a prosecutor will attempt to prove them by the much higher "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard.

    Perjury in civil cases is rarely prosecuted.
