In checking a court case online 3 months ago after the court case was settled, the court case listed the case type as "intentional tort, personal injury, civil rights. Now it says case type: "Intentional bodily injury/Property Damage/Wrongful death( eg assault, vandalism, etc. ) General jurisdiction.
Why would it change, and is there a way to get it back to the original description?
Thank you so much.
I suggest you call the court clerk to get an answer to this question. How a case is characterized on the court web site is not something an attorney would be concerned with.
I would assume that is just the website's algorithm in the way it categorizes lawsuits. I am not sure why it what buzz words are used to describe the matter on the website. The case it settled and, presumably, dismissed.
This communication offers general information based on the very limited information provided, and does not constitute the giving of legal advice, nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship.
I have no idea why it changes or why it would matter. The complaint didn't change and that is what is being litigated, not a categorization by a clerk.
Nothing herein guarantees, warranties, or predicts the result of any future legal representation. No attorney-client relationship is formed without the consent of the Law Offices of Todd Rash expressed in a written retainer agreement. Some of the answers here on Avvo may include questions that the attorneys hope you will answer by messaging them directly to them in hopes of establishing a relationship with you that will result in you hiring them. State law and Avvo rules prohibit attorneys from soliciting potential clients for business.
