"Martin Luther King Jr., when he said 'I have a dream', everyone was listening to him, but if he [would have] said 'I have a complaint', I think no one would [have listened] to [him].", --Mustafa Cerić on European Islam, recorded in Allah in Europa, September 18, 2017[1]

In legal terminology, a complaint is any formal legal document that sets out the facts and legal reasons (see: cause of action) that the filing party or parties (the plaintiff(s)) believes are sufficient to support a claim against the party or parties against whom the claim is brought (the defendant(s)) that entitles the plaintiff(s) to a remedy (either money damages or injunctive relief). For example, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) that govern civil litigation in United States courts provide that a civil action is commenced with the filing or service of a pleading called a complaint. Civil court rules in states that have incorporated the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure use the same term for the same pleading.
