Glossary of Terms

Note on Table Creation: The information in the tables comes from databases that are always being updated. As a result, the tables only show the information that was in the databases on the day they were created. Information in the databases can change because cases that were disposed at the time the table was created were later reopened, or because of the late entry of data. Because of this, all of the tables are created on the 5th business day after the close of the fiscal year.

  • Added case: A case that is entered into one of the Judicial Branch’s automated systems.
  • Disposed case: A case in which a decision has been made.
  • Fiscal year: July 1st through June 30th.
  • Pending case: A case in which a decision has not been made.
