Nevada fails in watchdog report of judge disclosures

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — A state Supreme Court spokesman is calling the grade that a watchdog group gave Nevada in a nationwide survey of judicial financial disclosures "unfortunate" and "misleading."

The Center for Public Integrity credits Nevada with being one of just 12 states where at least some financial disclosures about judges is posted.

But the Washington, D.C.-based group faults Nevada justices' disclosures as less thorough today than they were three years ago.

The center examined three years' of state supreme court judges' financial reports nationwide.

It gave Nevada an "F" grade, with a rating of 42.5 out of 100.

Nevada Supreme Court spokesman Bill Gang says the study wasn't neutral.
