Boise, ID (WorkersCompensation.com) -- Any practicing attorney or anyone who’s had to work their way through a court system knows well that there are plenty of rules about practice and procedure to govern what needs to be filed and when and how things must go for a case to get to court. 

There’s also a language that goes along with it, and Idaho has definitions that apply to the judicial rules of practice and procedure. Here’s a look at those Gem State terms
