Supreme Court Provides Snapshot of Nevada Courts

 

Snapshots of statistical information and facts for each Nevada court are now available on the  Supreme Court of Nevada's Administrative Office of the Courts website. The information details statistics for district, justice and municipal courts in each of Nevada's 10 judicial districts.

 

The information was compiled from the 2013 Annual Report of the Nevada Judiciary, and it condenses all of the reports, tables and information into a one-page document for each judicial district. The one-page fact-sheets contain charts, statistics and a brief analysis about each court in the state.

 

These new pages are designed to present citizens, local leaders and state representatives with summary information on the work of Nevada's courts in specific areas. Clicking on an interactive map of the state will provide information for each judicial district.

 

The information will be updated each year as the most current statistical information is compiled and published in the Annual Report of the Nevada Judiciary.
