If a case status is "disposed", what does that mean?
I have a case that has been sitting since 2004. I was arrested but never went to court. Now my case status states "disposed". What does that mean? When I looked at each charge individually status says "disposition entered".
- Auto Accidents
- Child Custody, Support, Adoption
- Collections and Debt
- Consumer and Lemon Law
- Criminal Defense
- DUI / DWI
- Divorce, Marriage, Alimony
The general rule is that "disposed" means that the case was resolved. However, based upon the facts that you have given it is unclear how it could have been resolved without your presence. In fact, based upon those facts it sounds like there is a warrant for your arrest for failure to appear. Nevertheless, it is possible, I suppose, that the prosecutor decided not to go forward with the charges. I suggest that you contact the clerk's office of the court where the charges were pending back in 2004 and attempt to get as much information about the disposition as possible. They will probably be able to give you more information -- which is clearly necessary in order for you to determine who to proceed. Good luck.
