-- Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that Jacey Prupas
, an associate in the Reno office, has been appointed by the Nevada State Bar as a temporary member for the Commission on Judicial Selection to fill the vacancy in Department 8 at the Second Judicial District Court.
The Commission on Judicial Selection is tasked with filling judicial vacancies that occur before expiration of a term of office in the Supreme Court or among district judges. The Commission is composed of seven permanent members.
For District Court vacancies, two temporary members are appointed from the judicial district where the vacancy occurs – a non-attorney by the Governor and an attorney by the State. The State Bar of Nevada appointed Prupas as its temporary member.
“This is a unique opportunity to be part of the judicial selection process and I thank the Nevada Bar for its vote of confidence in selecting me,” Prupas said. “I am honored to have been designated and I look forward to interviewing the candidates.”
The commission will interview attorneys for appointment to fill the vacancy at the Second Judicial District Court with the retirement of District Judge Steven Kosach.
Prupas’ practice is concentrated in general commercial litigation in both Nevada and California. She has experience with all stages of litigation, including pretrial discovery, trial, appellate work and alternative dispute resolution. Prupas’ practice includes representing businesses in all types of contract disputes, complex tort actions and product liability matters. She also has extensive experience with personal injury actions, both for plaintiffs and defendants.
