According to scattered reports in the official press (and searches of a Chinese court judgment database), quite a few of these cases have ended up in the civilian courts, leading military officers charged with implementing the CMC decision to meet with local court leaders. A quick search reveals many of the cases are leases, with military district real estate bureaus acting as lessors.
A local Jiangsu court reported that it had dealt with 36 cases, with about 2/3 resolved through mediation, by giving the military priority in taking the case, serving process, scheduling court hearings, mediation, and enforcement. It appears from the another press report that the military parties are relying on the principle of changed circumstances to terminate these leases and other contracts. It is unclear whether more comprehensive statistics on the total number of cases will be made available at year's end.
