The Selection of Disputes for Litigation

Of all lawsuits filed, only a small subset proceed to the holding of trial as opposed to being resolved at earlier stages by settlement. And the cases that reach trial differ systematically in their characteristics from the cases settled before that point.

George L. Priest & Benjamin Klein, 13 J. Legal Stud. 1 (1984)
