Debbie Blank, an enterprising reporter at the Batesville Herald-Tribune, has taken some court reports and explained the figures relevant to the counties served by her newspaper in this long story today that begins:

In Indiana trial courts in 2012, 1.6 million new cases were filed. That’s just one of many numbers in a collection of online reports that shed light on the Hoosier justice system.

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Brent Dickson pointed to their accessibility. “There are multiple volumes with more than 1,800 pages of information,” including statistics at the county level.
