Chief Appeals Court Judge Michael Gibbons is seeking re-election.
Chief Judge Michael Gibbons announced Friday that he will seek a third term on the Nevada Intermediate Court of Appeals.
He has been on that court since it was created in 2014 and its first members were appointed by then-Gov. Brian Sandoval.
“I’ve dedicated my career to ensuring Nevadans have access to a fair judicial system that follows the rule of law, guarantees equal justice and treats crime victims with dignity and respect,” he said in his announcement.
Before his appointment, Gibbons was a district judge in Douglas County for 20 years. Before that he was chief criminal deputy district attorney in Douglas County and prosecuted the extortion-bombing of Harvey’s Casino at Lake Tahoe. He twice served as president of the District Judges Association and spent eight years on the committee on judicial ethics.
Gibbons has been a member of the Nevada State Bar for 41 years.
