John McCormick, who has served as legislative liaison and rural courts coordinator at the Administrative Office of the Courts since 2006, has been promoted to assistance court administrator, said Robin Sweet, director of the AOC.
McCormick, a second-generation native Nevadan from Fallon, will coordinate inter-branch relations and supervise the judicial programs and Services division, which consists of the court services unit, the statistics and research unit, the judicial education unit, the Child Improvement Program (CIP) and Judicial Education. He will also oversee maintenance and facilities projects at the Supreme Court facilities in Carson City and Las Vegas and coordinate special events.
The committees he will oversee include the Indigent Defense Commission, the Commission on Preservation, Access, and Sealing of Court Records, the Statewide Commission on Juvenile Justice Reform, and the Specialty Court Funding Commission. His tasks will also include helping to coordinate the Judicial Council of the State of Nevada.
“John started with the AOC as an entry level analyst assisting with rural court issues,” said Sweet. “Over the last several years, John has eagerly accepted more duties and responsibilities in other areas growing to the person who now understands and has knowledge about many of the programs and commission efforts throughout the judiciary. We look forward to John continuing his excellent work for the Nevada judiciary in this new role.”
McCormick said he looks forward to his new role.
“I’m excited about the new opportunity to keep working on behalf of the Supreme Court and AOC to support Nevada’s Courts as the work to continue to efficiently ensure equal access to justice for all citizens of the State,” McCormick said.
McCormick, a graduate of Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Ore., was director of the Churchill Community Coalition prior to joining the AOC. He interned for former U.S. Sen. Richard Bryan, D-Nev., in 1999.
