The latest available data from the federal courts show that during March 2016 the government reported 505 new foreclosure civil filings.
While this is still significantly lower than the peak monthly level of such lawsuits filed in May and June of 2012, it has increased by almost one-third (32.7%) from one year ago.
The District of Nevada far and away led the nation with 15.9 foreclosure civil cases filed per one million people, nearly ten times the U.S. national average of 1.6 such cases filed per million. Nevada was followed by the District of Rhode Island and the Southern District of Illinois, each with 4.7 cases per million.
