What are Court Cases Records?
A court case is an official argument or dispute which has been brought to a court of justice. This type of argument can be between individuals, businesses of public organizations. A legal court case might involved a criminal felony or a civil dispute. In a court case there are two parties: A defendants and an accuser. Another name for this type of dispute might be: Lawsuit. In this type of situation an accuser is asking the court for a judgment of an accusation against the other party.
The request might involve an injunction to stop a certain action, compensation such as money, or jail time. Court cases are considered public records and are released to the public.

United States Court Records: Know the Statistics!
The United States has one of the most complex judicial systems in the world that has been developing ceaselessly since the formation of the country. Keeping data on court cases is extremely important in the judicial system, as it helps to determine precedent, as well as save information on past and ongoing cases.
Since its inception in 1975, the National State for Court Records (NCSC) has been keeping track of court cases in America, and these are some of the statistics it has gathered:
Over 95% of all court cases that are filed in the U.S. are filed in state court case
As of 2016, the number of district court cases reached 368,000. That same year, there were 60,000 cases that were filed to appeals courts, as well as 795,000 cases that were filed with bankruptcy courts (all of these cases are federal court cases)
In state courts, there were 84 million court cases that were filed in 2016, and 257,000 cases that were filed in appellate courts
In 2018, there was a 7% decrease in the number of criminal appeals, reaching a total of 9,670. This was the results of declines in appeals having to do with drug offenses.
In 2017, the number of appealing's filings decreased by 16% in appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts, and there was a 10% decrease in bankruptcy appellate filings and court cases.
It is estimated that there are between 960,000 and 3,000,000 domestic violence cases in the U.S. each year. However, not all domestic violence cases go reported. The estimation is that 10 million Americans experience domestic violence every year, but only a small percent of them get reported.
The 5 most common types of lawsuits that are likely to end up in court are Employment Discrimination and Wrongful Termination, Wage Law Violations, Discrimination Suits Not Based on Employment, Torts and Breach of Contract.
In 2016, there was a 15.64% decrease in the number of criminal cases appeals. With civil appeals, there was a 0.02% increase in the number of case appeals.
The number of fraud cases and fraud defendants in 2016 was 7,138, which marked a 15% decrease compared to previous years.
