What is the difference between Unknown and Other resolution types?

Regarding the Unknown designation: The data repositories searched by Verdict & Settlement Analyzer are quite large and come from various sources. Some are internal to LexisNexis and others are outside, third-party resources. As such, some documents in that repository may not contain all the data types you might expect to see listed. For example, some documents may not list the jurisdiction or the result, while others may not list the area of law. When this information isn’t included in the document, it is graphed as “unknown” in the results. To help you view only known information, you can filter your search results to show only those documents that contain the specific data on which you are focusing and filter out “unknown” data.

Regarding the Other designation: Typically these results are described within the text of the document but are not reported in the typical fashion.
