Like higher status, as the number one foreclosure state in USA, was not enough, now more bad news coming to Nevada. Our bankruptcy rate is one of the highest in USA. It is not the most privileged and sought after status. It should be embarrassing for us. A bankruptcy is not a proud thing but it should be embarrassing as well as the protection is provided under the federal law. There are laws which stops discrimination against folks who have filed bankruptcy and were discharged through bankruptcy.
