On the Disposition screen (DISUPD) in JCS (at the bottom of the screen), how do we know when to associate the Disposition to the case, the case charge, the referral, or the referral reason?
If a case has been filed, on the Disposition (DISUPD) and Condition (CNDUPD) screens, the Disposition or Condition is automatically associated with the case, so there is no need to select the case in the Disposition Associations section on the Dispositions screen of the Conditions Association section on the Dispo Conditions screen. In instances where no case has been filed (e.g., diversions), the disposition or condition is automatically associated with the referral so there is no need to select the referral in the Disposition Associations or Conditions Associations section.
The only time a disposition or condition should be associated with a referral reason (i.e., click checkbox in the Disposition Associations or Conditions Associations section of the screen) is when the disposition or condition is related to a Probation Violation, Contempt, or Failure to Comply (revocation). The motions for these actions are entered as referral reasons and should be associated with the subsequent disposition and conditions.
The only time a disposition or condition should be associated with a case charge(s) is when the disposition or condition is not related to all case charges and only to specific charge(s).
When a disposition or condition is associated with a specific case charge or referral reason on the Dispositions or Dispo Conditions screen, a reference number for the case charge (e.g., V1) or referral reason (e.g., r2) displays preceding the disposition or condition on the History screens and reports.
