Nevada’s top justice wants to form a permanent Supreme Court committee that would monitor and analyze the state’s troubled guardianship system.

Chief Justice James Hardesty made the recommendation during Monday’s meeting of the state’s commission analyzing the administration of guardianships.

“This is a very complex matter that has a lot of moving parts,” Hardesty told the Review-Journal after the meeting. “We’re talking about making some significant reforms to the process.”
