Comments: The codes describe the relationship between the cases from the point of view of the case within which this data element appears. For example,
A defendant under docket# 96K000123 takes a plea that covers docket# 96K000321, which is dismissed.
Table:
Case Relationship Associated Case
96K000123 203 (Covering) 96K000321
96K000321 103 (Covered by) 96K000123
Both cases should have an ASSOCIATED COURT CASE NUMBER pointing to the other case with the proper ASSOCIATED COURT CASE RELATIONSHIP denoted. In most instances the relationship is unidirectional, so a different code must be used with each of the cases. It is critical that the ASSOCIATED COURT CASE NUMBER be matched with an ASSOCIATED COURT CASE RELATIONSHIP during transmission in that there may be several associated cases referred to by the same case.
