This is a working draft of a chapter in a book that introduces and compares civil justice systems in the United States, Germany and Korea. It addresses how the hypothetical lawsuit in the case comes out. The outcome in the United States is even the winner loses, i.e., pays too much for too little relief. In Germany and Korea, on the other hand, the winner gets to keep most of the winnings. The second part of this chapter is the conclusion of the book. It explains the German advantages in civil procedure.
