  1. I don't do much traffic, so please forgive my ignorance. I have a friend who was cited for speeding in far southwest (Mountains Edge) - but by a Henderson PO and the ticket is in Henderson JC. Is that weird?

    1. Weird and inappropriate which is why I am doubting the story.

    2. I'm looking at the citation on the Henderson Justice Court website right now. It says:

      Place of offense: Henderson Township
      Agency: Henderson Police Department
      Location: Cimarron at Robel

      Look up Cimarron at Robel on Google Maps and it is clearly in Mountains Edge, far far away from Henderson.

    3. I live in Southern Highlands and last fall we had Boulder City Police running a radar operation in the community over multiple days. I called Metro and they said it was allowed, assuming the BCPD was in the area on other business, like serving a warrant. Seems a like a real potential for abuse.

    4. I don't doubt there are cross-jurisdiction agreements between the departments allowing officers to enforce the law wherever they may be, especially in the same county, but shouldn't an offense be adjudicated in the justice court where it occurred?

    5. Justice Court jurisdictions extend to the entire county. I don't think it's fair but it's legal. Police officers also extend to the entire state assuming they're not acting outside their dept policy.

    6. Here's the law:
      NRS 4.370
      4.  Except as otherwise provided in subsections 5 and 6, in criminal cases the jurisdiction of justices of the peace extends to the limits of their respective counties.
      5.  In the case of any arrest made by a member of the Nevada Highway Patrol, the jurisdiction of the justices of the peace extends to the limits of their respective counties and to the limits of all counties which have common boundaries with their respective counties.

    7. This happened to me also, and I bitched to the city attorney, who transferred it back into LVJC. Pick your poison.

    8. I have had several clients pulled over in North Las Vegas by the Speedway and the tickets ended up in Henderson. This usually happens after you have been obnoxious to the PO but can also happen even being polite because some officers are just cranky.

    9. Viva Las Vegas where anything goes. Logic rarely is involved.

  2. Are you sure it was a Henderson cop, and not NHP?

    3. Nope sorry. Just hold a bachelors, not a law degree like you. That must be your problem. I have heard law school can really mess up the brain's abilities.

    4. "Just hold a bachelors, not a law degree like you"

    13. 10:53 -- I bet you're as sharp in real life as you are on your blogs. Nice to know that your knowledge comes from what you hear, rather than from what you know. Hey, Mr. Bachelor's degree, can you give me fries with my burger?

    14. Sessions is amazing. He will make sure to deport the scum and imprison evil doers. I hope he takes it easy on drugs. It is not the pot but the man consuming it. I know plenty of pot lovers who are productive citizens. Let the states decide who can use reefer. Stay out of it, Sessions. Go after enemies of America, like Carlos Slim.

    15. Wasn't he rejected for a Cabinet position 30 years ago for some nastiness. Time heals all wounds and memories. You are likely too young to remember what a douche he was back then. One voters Douche is another's hero.

    16. That's right. He is a huge racist and was rejected for judge.

    2. Linda's close friend here. We do not call her Marie. Ever.

    3. You misunderstood. Only her close friends call her Linda.

    4. OK I am lost. I will just ask Stew what she prefers to be called.

      Delete
    5. Wait, I thought we call her Baby Bell?

      Delete
    6. Just talked to Linda/Judge Bell. This is her response: "I use my full legal name 'Linda Marie Bell' - no initial! - for anything in writing. Outside of court, generally people call me Linda."

      Delete
    7. Who the hell cares? Linda Bell sucks.

      Delete
    8. Linda Bell is fantastic. An example of a Judge for whom I had very little hope and high complaints of nepotism who has worked her butt off to be a good Judge. She doesn't always get the balls and strikes calls 100% correct but she is pretty close and you never worry that she was not paying attention.

      Delete
    9. Calm down, Linda, or Bell jock sniffer. She is slow, and indecisive. She only got elected bc she is a Bell.

      Delete
    10. Don't put Baby Bell in the corner.

      Delete
    11. Baby Bell meet Baby Johnson, meet Baby Denton.

    12. I like Judge Bell. She is always prepared and will actually make the hard calls, unlike most of our PI pandering judiciary. The last time I was in her court she had this sweet bleach blond hair. That has nothing to do with her capabilities as a judge, but I thought it was pretty punk rock for a judge!

    13. Baby Bell is Josey of Josey and the Pussycats.

    14. How do I audition to be a back up singer?

    15. Baby Bell's J and Pcat's bup singer?
      Does she go by Josey or Baby Bell?

    17. What is WRONG with all of you? Is this Junior High School. Stop ragging on the judges. They're not the ones who come out of this looking bad.

  6. Nominating Sessions is a bold move and rewards his core base. He seems like an honorable guy.

    2. Except for the time he wasn't confirmed for the federal judiciary for his racist past. And his present love for excluding muslims and immigrants in general doesn't suggest he's changed.

    3. Ah, yes, let the bigotry begin. Wait, it already has.

  7. Bold move and cool guy? I hope you are a convicted felon and ineligible to vote.
