Conducting a thorough Party Name Search using the Court PC Online
You're searching for litigation
involving an individual, and you've run the Party Name Search for that
name as an individual. Consider running
the party's last name through the business name records to check for any "irregular
entries," such as a person serving as an administrator or executor
of an estate, a person using a DBA name, or an individual name
mistakenly entered where a business name should go. One out of
every 50 entries in the business name data fits one of those three
categories. Court PC never charges for duplicate name searches,
so why not take the extra step?
do the letters "PPA" mean when used in a party name record?
"PPA" stands for the Latin phrase
per procura, meaning "by proxy"-- typically used when a parent is
named in litigation in the place of a minor child
a huge number of matching records.
So maybe your last party name search
produced over a thousand matching records. What's your strategy
for reviewing, analyzing or presenting such a large
number of matching records? Consider exporting the data to a TXT
file for use in Microsoft Excel or Access.
With data mapping and mining
software like Datawatch's Monarch or SAP's Crystal Reports, you can easily convert that
TXT file for use with MS-Excel, to sort and filter the records as needed.
Of course, not everyone has these tools available.
If you don't, e-mail one or more TXT files to Court PC, and we'll
convert it to an MS-Excel workbook or MS-Access database for you.
