Yes, a defendant in a civil suit may counter sue the plaintiff if they have a viable cause of action. This explains the process.

Here are instructions/explanations as well; while they are issued by one county they are applicable throughout the state:

Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

So the counter suit is for unauthorized use of a car? If so the party may sue for wear and tear and any damage to the vehicle.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
