Important notes about the data

  • The fiscal year runs from October 1 of the previous calendar year through September 30 of the year.
  • Information on the individual transactions listed under the category of "Abandoned/ Fix-it-first / Restructured" transactions is nonpublic.
  • An asterisk (* ) in the "Part 3 Administrative Complaints" column means that all Part 3 Administrative Complaints for that year were accompanied by an Authorization to seek a Preliminary or Permanent Injunction in federal court.  To avoid double counting, only the federal court proceeding is counted in this table.
  • +This is a correction to the results previously reported.  In FY2011, an additional abandoned, restructured or fix-it-first enforcement was identified after Fiscal Year closure.
