A: A case number that begins with "IS" typically involves insurance. In a criminal case it would be insurance fraud. Other case abbreviations are "TR" (Traffic), "CR" (Criminal), "PF" (Prefile), etc. However, each court is allowed to use their own abbreviation code so depending on which jurisdiction your case is in, it could mean something different.

A: According to the AZ Court's website and "IS" code stands for "Interstate Compact Criminal." You can find a list of the different court codes here: https://www.azcourts.gov/courtservices/Automation-Services-Unit/Code-Standardization-GJ

Interstate Compact is the method that states use to transfer parole or probation from one state to another.
