In Federal Court, A Win is a Win

Any practicing attorney knows that when you file a lawsuit, you need to include all potential possible causes of actions that are relevant to the client’s claims. In general, claims not asserted arising from the same set of circumstances may be waived if not asserted. Another reason for asserting all possible causes of action is the unpredictability of the courts. If the court disagrees with your theory of the case regarding a particular cause of action, it is always good to have others to fall back on.
