What does it mean for a case to be transferred to higher or lower court that is outside the grant-funded jurisdiction?

A case may be transferred to another court that is outside the grant-funded jurisdiction for many reasons.  For example, courts often handle only felony or misdemeanor crimes.  If you transfer a case outside the jurisdiction that is receiving grant funds because the charges were reduced or enhanced beyond what that court typically handles, then report that case as transferred.  In another example, if you transfer a case outside the jurisdiction that is receiving grant funds because the case was filed in the wrong jurisdiction, report that case as transferred.
