A drop in civil filings in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia closely tracks national data showing an overall 21% dip in federal civil litigation filed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic through mid-May.

In Georgia, there were 599 cases filed in that period this year, as opposed to 749 last year, a 20% decline. The figures come from a Law.com analysis showing some districts saw a greater drop, with Northern Illinois and the District of Columbia seeing a nearly 30% decrease. Some regions saw little change, though. Texas, for instance, saw a change of less than 1%.
