Nevada Supreme Court closing in on its 60,000th case
Nevada: The Nevada Supreme Court expects to file its 60,000th case early next year. For some perspective on the state's rate of growth, it took over 100 years for the first 10,000 cases to filed; nearly that same number has been filed in the last 4 1/2 years. In its history the court's original make up of 3 justices has more than doubled since 1967. Nevada is one of only 11 states in the country without an intermediate appellate court. A constitutional amendment to create one was proposed in 2010 but was rejected by voters.
