The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting this morning that the number of new foreclosure cases in Milwaukee dropped 8% in June compared to foreclosure filings in June 2010. The article went on to say that monthly totals remain at elevated levels for the area, as high unemployment and a week housing market continue to take a toll.

In a response to these foreclosure filings the bankruptcy court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin has initiated a mortgage mediation program. This program helps people overcome large arrearages on mortgages so that they are able to stay in their homes.
