In North Dakota it is not so complicated. Once the DA rules it was SD it is done.
I most seriouslydoubt that.

TheDA may conclude that the stare has insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable down that a crime has been committed.

But the standard of proof for civil liability is a preponderance of the evidence. That is a long held and fundamental precept of jurisprudence.

and, of course, nothing is "done" on the basis of one DA's determination. The next DA can change things.

And yes I have experience with the criminal justice system here.
Civil liability does not fall within the purview of the criminal justice system.
