    Ball-in-Court: The user who should be made aware of this item and is currently responsible for the item. When the record is saved an e-mail is sent to the Ball-in-Court. This will occur every time the Ball-in-Court is changed.
    Cc: Any additional users who should be aware of this item. When the record is saved an e-mail is sent to all listed in the Cc field.  This will occur every time the Ball-in-Court is changed.
