- The primary is over and you can see Clark County's unofficial final results here.
- The first big news out of the results is that Las Vegas Justice Court Department 14 is going to have a lame duck judge for the next 6 months. That's right--Amy "JoAnne" Chelini got the majority of the vote and soundly defeated Judge Conrad Hafen. Under the new rules, if the winner in a primary election for a justice court judge (this doesn't apply to the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, or District Court judges) gets the majority of vote, they win and do not have to face another challenge at the general election. Judges Bonaventure and Saragosa also benefitted from this rule as they easily secured the majority. Harmony Letizia and Judge Janiece Marshall will face off in the general election for Department 3 and Judge Bita Yeager will face Rebecca Kern in Department 6. [RJ]
- For District Court Department 20, the general election will see Judge Eric Johnson square off against Anat "Annette" Levy.
- The AG's office wants oral arguments on school choice to be postponed. [RJ]
- Unofficially, Las Vegas is getting an NHL hockey team. [Las Vegas Sun]
