Applications open for district judge

Applications for appointment to former District Judge Michael Gibbons’ seat will be accepted through Jan. 28.

Gibbons was appointed to the new Nevada appellate court, which started work this week.

Retired District Judge Dave Gamble is filling in for Gibbons until a new judge is appointed.

The appointment process is open to all Nevada attorneys with 10 years of legal experience, including two years of experience in Nevada.

Applications may be submitted to the AOC in Carson City or Las Vegas according to application instructions. The applications for these vacancies are available at:

Applicants must submit a hard copy of a completed application to the Administrative Office of the Courts by 5 p.m. on Jan. 28. The application must specify the open seat sought by the applicant. Under rule amendments recently approved by the Commission, applications that are filed late or are incomplete will be rejected.

Interviews to fill the Minden vacancy are tentatively scheduled for the week of Feb. 23, at the Nevada Supreme Court in Carson City, and will be open to the public.

The public will be able to view the applications, with the exceptions of medical records and personal identification information, on the Supreme Court website within a day or two following the application deadline. Also remaining confidential will be the letters of comment solicited about the candidates, along with letters of reference to ensure the authors can be candid.
