Abuse of Process

Abuse of process refers to the improper use of a civil or criminal legal procedure for an unintended, malicious, or perverse reason.  It is the malicious and deliberate misuse of regularly issued civil or criminal court processes that are not justified by the underlying legal actions.  Abuse of process includes litigation actions filed in bad faith that are meant to delay the delivery of justice.
