Clark County is currently accepting applications for a vacancy in the Las Vegas Township Justice Court.
Qualified applicants must have five years' experience as an attorney and submit their application to the County Manager's Office by Nov. 30. Applications are available at the County Manager's Office, which is on the 6th floor of the County Government Center at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas. Applications are also available on the county's website.
The current vacancy is the result of current Justice Court Justice of the Peace Deborah Lippis' retirement, which took effect Sept. 21 after 25 years on the bench. The eight-member county judicial selection committee will review the applicants and recommend attorneys to be considered for the position. The County Commission will appoint from that list to serve as Justice of the Peace until January 2019, at which time the position will be filled by whomever wins the November 2018 elections for the position.
Justice Court handles misdemeanors, traffic matters, felony arraignments, civil disputes under $15,000, small claims and landlord tenant disputes.
