Remedial State Proceedings Law and Legal Definition

Remedial state proceedings refer to those judicial proceedings by which a plaintiff seeks to redress a wrong inflicted by the state.

The following is an example of a case law on remedial state proceedings:

In remedial state proceedings, the plaintiff is attempting in both state and federal courts to vindicate a wrong inflicted by the state; in coercive state proceedings, the federal plaintiff is the state court defendant, and the state proceedings were initiated to enforce a state law.
