Amount Sought By Plaintiff By Year

How much a particular plaintiff sought in judgments in a particular year.

We add a wild card at the end of the plaintiff name, so if you are looking for "BIG BOYZ BAIL BONDS INC" as a plaintiff try putting in just "Big Boyz" that way you can get all the muliple spellings. If you are looking for a person it must be "Lastname, Firstname".
