If justice fails at all levels of court how do you take matters further? I tried asking this on another legal forum without any useful replys:

"The background circumstances are that you have failed to receive justice no matter how far you have taken a case through the court system and want to take matters further. Please keep in mind that I am not talking about committing a crime due to the nature of this pursue would have to bring on the consent from both parties."

They mentioned that dueling outlawed. Is this true? Are there any books anyone could recommend to find this information?

Yes dueling is illegal.

Many legal cases are not brought to finality, in some criminal cases it is a matter of there not being sufficient evidence to convict anyone

In other cases the evidence of the two parties conflicts and there is no way of determining which is correct.

Sometimes it is a case of expediency; pursuing the case will cost more than the result justifies.

Remember courts have a high case load and sometimes the more pressing cases take precedence, courts can refuse to hear a case.

Being able to step back and say, "I did my best, now I need to get on with my life" is sometimes just as important as the outcome that was originally sought.

Law is complex it is not possible to recommend a book without having any idea of what the case is all about, even then remember lawyers study for years, and only after that are they able to identify the legal details and case law that they then need to read up about to be able to represent a party in some complex case

There is only one reply that can be given to such a terse response.
