Civil Jurisdiction - Actions commenced by cause of action 1997 to 2012
These files provide recorded civil statistics counting causes of actions as at the date writs are filed with the County Court. The number of causes of actions may not equal the number of civil cases initiated, as one case may have multiple causes of action. Responsibility for ensuring that a proceeding is assigned the correct cause of action lies with the solicitor having conduct of the case. Refer to the County Court Rules of Procedure in Civil Proceedings 1999 for further details on the civil process in the County Court. The data in these reports are extracted from the County Courts Case List and Management System (CLMS) as at 29 August 2013. Each report contains financial and calendar year data.
