To dream of a lawsuit represents you or someone else that is taking action to restore fairness. Getting revenge, embarrassing someone, or using your leverage to force someone to change. Your attempt to right an imbalance or unfair situation. Not wanting someone else getting away with something.
To dream of having a lawsuit filed against you may be a sign that someone in your life doesn’t feel that your status or level of achievement is fair. Something may not like seeing you get away with something.
