Summary of Cases Involving Civil Penalties

Civil Penalty Cases Resolved

For a given year, this table shows the number of civil penalty cases initiated (or opened) and the number of this same set of cases that has competed the civil penalty collection process. Also shown are the percent of cases completing the civil penalty collection process and the percent of cases which have yet to complete the process (pending).

Cases completing the civil penalty collection process include all closed and withdrawn cases as well as open cases for which penalties have been assessed in a Final Order and collected. The report also includes cases where the assessed civil penalty was reduced to zero from a prior proposed amount, and therefore no collection was required.
