The Nevada Supreme Court is swearing in 75 more mediators to the Nevada Foreclosure Mediation Program.
The new group brings to 170 the number of attorneys, hearing officers and senior judges available to help homeowners and lenders reach middle ground in the state with highest foreclosure rate.
Chief Justice James Hardesty will swear in mediators by videoconference Friday in Supreme Court courtrooms in Carson City and Las Vegas.
The Foreclosure Mediation Program began with 95 mediators in July.
Supreme Court spokesman Bill Gang says that after eliminating duplicate applications, officials have nearly 3,300 homeowners seeking third-party review to try to keep their homes.
About 500 cases have been heard. Another 1,000 are scheduled. Mediations are expected to conclude within 90 days of notices of default being recorded.
