Civil Cause of Action Comparison Chart

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Over the past year, the Judiciary Data and Analysis Office received court requests for an updated civil cause of action table. The updated cause of action table was provided to each court for reference.

To allow attorneys to use the most up-to-date cause of action codes, we have installed the new table in our CM/ECF system. We also did a comparison of the codes, separating them into four categories: New cause of actions, codes that were in the new list and also in our previous list, codes that were only in our previous list and codes that are no longer used.

This comparison chart lists these four categories on separate tabs. We hope it will assist you in selecting the correct cause of action code for your cases.
