- In case you weren't already aware, there are two openings on the Eighth Judicial District Court bench. Applications for those openings in Depts. 10 and 18 are due on February 24, 2017. Because the Nevada Supreme Court and the Nevada Court of Appeals are moving from the Regional Justice Center on February 21, no applications will be accepted in Las Vegas. All applications must be delivered to the Supreme Court in Carson City by 5 pm on February 24. The appointment process is open to all Nevada attorneys with 10 years of legal experience, including two years in Nevada. More info and applications here.

- The Supreme Court has decided it is time to update the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure and have selected a committee. We have it on good authority that at least one, if not more of the people on that committee, are readers of the blog, so do you have any suggestions on rules you would like to see changed or added. Arizona recently did this and you can get a taste of the changes they did here. [ADKT 0522]
