Hello Linda and thanks for your post.

According to the January 13, 2009 Napa Valley Register:

"The total number of cases filed with the (Napa County) court annually has increased by 18.9 percent since 2001. Today there are approximately 32,860 cases filed with the court every year. Over the past seven years, the largest percent increases in civil case filings have occurred in the areas of family law (33.5 percent), juvenile delinquency (30 percent) and general civil (384 percent).

The alarmingly large increase in general civil cases is attributable to the current economy. This category of cases included breach of contract, collection and civil harassment cases. The biggest reduction in case filings came in the area of personal injury cases (24.4 percent). On the criminal side, the largest increase in filings was in felony cases (70 percent)."

The Register, however, did not cite how many cases were felony filings. To learn more about the number of felony cases filed and the conviction rate, you wlll need to contact the Superior Court offices in Napa. They may have statistics available for your review.

Good luck!
