There are no other species of forensic
causes, not even when one person brings the same
suit on the same grounds against two different
persons, or two persons bring the same suit against
one, or several against several, as occasionally occurs
in lawsuits about inheritances. Because although a
number of parties may be involved, there is still only
one suit, unless indeed the different circumstances
of the various parties alter the questions at issue.
