Men more likely to go to court than women
Nearly one in four Americans have been to court either as a plaintiff or defendant in a case. A new survey by FindLaw found that 37% of Americans have spent time in court.
However, results also indicate that men are more likely to go to court than women. Forty-four percent of male respondents have been to court, while only 31% of women have done the same.
The top reasons for being in court are traffic, divorce, small claims, bankruptcy and criminal cases.
