Civil procedure

Civil procedure is the body of law that sets out the rules and standards that courts follow when adjudicating civil lawsuits. These rules govern how a case may be commenced; some systems, including the English and French, allow governmental persons to bring a criminal prosecution against another person. Prosecutions are nearly always started by the state in order to punish the accused. Civil actions, on the other hand, are started by private individuals, companies or organizations, for their own benefit. In addition, governments may be parties to civil actions; the cases are in different courts. However this is distinguished from civil penal actions. In jurisdictions based on English common-law systems, the party bringing a criminal charge is called the "prosecution", but the party bringing most forms of civil action is the "plaintiff" or "claimant". In both kinds of action the other party is known as the "defendant". A criminal case against a person called Ms. Sanchez would be described as “The People v. Sanchez,” "The State v. Sanchez" or " v. Sanchez" in the United States and “R. v. Sanchez” in England and Wales, amongst other Commonwealth realms.

But a civil action between Ms. Sanchez and a Mr. Smith would be “Sanchez v. Smith” if it were started by Sanchez, “Smith v. Sanchez” if it were started by Mr. Smith. Most countries make a clear distinction between criminal procedure. For example, a criminal court may force a convicted defendant to pay a fine as punishment for his crime, the legal costs of both the prosecution and defence, but the victim of the crime pursues his claim for compensation in a civil, not a criminal, action. In France and England, however, a victim of a crime may incidentally be awarded compensation by a criminal court judge. Evidence from a criminal trial is admissible as evidence in a civil action about the same matter. For example, the victim of a road accident does not directly benefit if the driver who injured him is found guilty of the crime of careless driving, he still has to prove his case in a civil action, unless the doctrine of collateral estoppel applies, as it does in most American jurisdictions. In fact he may be able to prove his civil case when the driver is found not guilty in the criminal trial, because the standard to determine guilt is higher than the standard to determine fault.

However, if a driver is found by a civil jury not to have been negligent, a prosecutor may be estopped from charging him criminally. If the plaintiff has shown that the defendant is liable, the main remedy in a civil court is the amount of money, or "damages", which the defendant should pay to the plaintiff. Alternative civil remedies include restitution or transfer of property, or an injunction to restrain or order certain actions; the standards of proof are higher in a criminal case than in a civil one, since the state does not wish to risk punishing an innocent person. In English law the prosecution must prove the guilt of a criminal “beyond reasonable doubt”. Thus, in a criminal case a crime cannot be proven if the person or persons judging it doubt the guilt of the suspect and have a reason for this doubt, but in a civil case, the court will decide what is most probable.

Farndale

Farndale is a valley in Ryedale district, North Yorkshire, known for the daffodils which flower each spring along a 7-mile stretch of the River Dove. The valley is in the North York Moors National Park, some 11 miles north of Kirkbymoorside, the nearest town. Pickering is Helmsley 17 miles to the south-west; the population of the civil parishes of Farndale East and Farndale West combined was 207 in 2011, was estimated to have dropped to 180 by 2015. Farndale is an isolated, scattered agricultural community with traditional Yorkshire dry stone walls; the valley is popular with walkers due to its famous wild daffodils, which can be seen around Easter time all along the banks of the River Dove. To protect the daffodils the majority of Farndale north of Lowna was created a Local Nature Reserve in 1955. Farndale is home to two hamlets. Low Mill is a tourist honeypot during daffodil season as this is where the famous daffodil walk begins; the other end of the daffodil walk is at High Mill a cluster of houses a short distance down a lane from Church Houses.

The annual Farndale Agricultural Show, held on the Summer Bank Holiday Monday in late August is a popular local event. The 100th Show was held in 2006. Sources disagree on the origin of the name Farndale, although it is a combination of two parts "Farn" and "Dale". There a four possible origins for "Farn" all of which do describe the dale, it may be derived from the Celtic "Faren" meaning beautiful. While Dale means Valley either derived from Scandinavion "Dalr" or Anglian "Dæl" although it could be derived from the Gaelic "Dail" meaning level field by a river; the name of the River Dove which Flows though Farndale is definitely from either the Old British "Dubo" meaning Black or from the Gaelic "Dubh" meaning black, hence Black River. Farndale is a valley within the North York Moors, it is surrounded by some of the wildest moorland in England; the dale is sandwiched between Bransdale to the west, Rosedale to the east and Westerdale to the north. To the north-east sits Blakey Ridge at over 1,312 feet above sea level, to the north-west, Cockayne Ridge reaching up to 1,490 feet above sea level is one of the highest points of the North York Moors.

The southern boundary of the Farndale Parishes are along Harland Beck and Shortsha Beck, although the Gillamoor to Hutton-le-Hole road is considered as the boundary for all other purposes, south of this the dale continues but changes its name to Douthwaitedale, though the Tabular Hills until is reaches Keldhome Kirkby Mills just east of Kirkbymoorside. The River Dove rises on Westerdale Moor North of Farndale flows through Farndale south-east past to Church Houses. Here it continues meandering past Low Mill to Lowna. At Gillamoor it heads south-east again past Hutton-le-Hole before returning southwards past Ravenswick and to the east of Kirkbymoorside, it continues past Kikrby Mills to Great Edstone. From there it flows south south-east to where it joins the River Rye in the Vale of Pickering near the village of Salton. Several tributaries meet the Dove through Farndale two of these make the valley is almost'cactus' shaped, with a long central valley following the River Dove, two side branches to make the arms - Blakey Gill near Church Houses and West Gill near Low Mill.

The Farndale Local Nature Reserve constitutes the majority of Farndale, a dale within the North York Moors National Park. It was created in 1955 to protect the wild daffodils; the Local Nature reserve comprises the larger part of the Farndale Site of Special Scientific Interest which comprises 390 acres. Over 40,000 people visit the dale in the springtime to walk along the River Dove and see the daffodils; the variety of daffodil that grows wild in the valley, has shorter stems than the cultivated variety and are believed to have been planted by monks in medieval times. The daffodils are known as Lent Lillies in Farndale and they appear around Lent. Around the north of Farndale, between Bloworth Crossing and Blakey is the track bed of the old Rosedale Ironstone Railway which forms part of two Long Distance Footpaths these being Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk and The Lyke Wake Walk. Farndale was divided between three ancient parishes. Farndale Eastside was a township in the parish of Lastingham.

The township of Farndale High Quarter and Bransdale Eastside and the township of Farndale Low Quarter were in the parish of Kirkbymoorside. In 1873 Farndale Hiqh Quarter and Farndale Westside joined to become a single parish; the Farndale parishes were subsequently realigned to Farndale West. The dividing line between the two Farndale civil parishes is along the course of the River Dove; until 2018 Farndale East had a Parish Council responsible for the eastern side including Church Houses and Farndale West had a Parish Meeting looking after the western side including Low Mill. In April 2018 a joint Farndale Parish Council was formed under a grouping order and it now represents the interests of all residents in Farndale; the second tier of Local Government is Ryedale District Council and the third tier North Yorkshire County Council being part of the North Riding of Yorkshire. Farndale is part of the Thirsk and Malton UK Parliament
