January 13, 2015

Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement on the investiture of the Nevada Court of Appeals judges: 

"Yesterday's historic event was a giant leap forward for Nevada's legal system, and all Nevadans," said Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt.  “As a number of the speakers mentioned: justice delayed is justice denied. Our new intermediate court of appeals will help ensure timely access to justice for all in our great State. Congratulations to Judges Jerome T. Tao, Michael P. Gibbons, and Abbi Silver for making history as Nevada’s first intermediate court appellate judges.”

The creation of the Court of Appeals expedites the appeals process and assists the Supreme Court in publishing official opinions, which will help the Attorney General’s office in interpreting the law and advising state agencies and clients.
