CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - 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.
