The latest available data from the federal courts show that during August 2022 the government reported 29,635 new civil filings. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, this number is up 45.8% over the previous month when the number of civil filings of this type totaled 20,319.
Most of this increase was due to a significant jump of new filings in the Northern District of Florida (Pensacola) and the Western District of Louisiana (Shreveport). The comparisons of the number of civil filings are based on case-by-case court records which were compiled and analyzed by TRAC.
Among the suits filed in August, "Personal Injury- Product Liability" was the most frequent nature of suit. "Insurance" was next in frequency, followed by "Civil Rights."
