Upon the filing of these claims, the defendant may ask the judge to dismiss the plaintiff's lawsuit for deficiencies in prima facie case. For the purpose of this review, the judge will assume that the facts presented by the plaintiff are correct. If, despite this assumption, the plaintiff's prima facie case is incomplete or legally unfounded, it may be dismissed, or the plaintiff may be given an opportunity to amend it to satisfy the defense's objections. During the pretrial phase of the lawsuit, the plaintiff must present legally sufficient evidence to support the allegations in the prima facie case.
