The Legal System and ADR Analyses

I have never written a memo before. If I can just get help getting it started. Thank you so much.

Write a memo on a state (not federal) level business dispute. Describe as if you were writing a "white paper" for your boss who wants to know how a case like the one you have chosen would be processed throughout the various legal phases in a state court system.
