I looked up an answer from one of your experts DWINGOESQ and he answered a client that he can let one case remain dormant and file the new case and if the party opposes then he can file a 'stipulation of dicontinuance'. So, my question is still in a dilemma!!!!
So, should I wait for case to be dismissed from federal court or wait for something done about it and after that file in state court? My undesrtanding from your answer is that you can not have two cases simultaneously, but what about different court system and different sovereignities.
Also, if one wants to bring a case for the same reasons covered by both state and federeal law, should one wait for one court to finish its administrative process before filing the second case?
