Note on Table Creation:
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.
