Nevada Supreme Court reaches 60,000th case

Court Watch Posted on

Nevada's Supreme Court has reached a milestone this week after hitting its 60,000th case.

Court officials say Monday that the distinction went to an appeal in a complex homeowner's association case with 74 defendants.

Supreme Court officials say that filings at the Nevada's only appellate court have been growing rapidly as the state's population has increased.

It took 112 years of statehood for the court to hit 10,000 cases. That milestone came Aug. 12, 1977.

But it took just more than four years to accrue the most recent 10,000 cases. The court hit 50,000 cases in August 2007.

Chief Justice Nancy Saitta says the number of cases is memorable, but also points to a backlog that delays resolving the legal matters.
