Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday appointed two women to fill vacant judgeships in Clark County District Court.
Adriana Escobar, 53, a deputy state attorney general and graduate of the California Western School of Law, will replace retired Judge Donald Mosley.
Kerry Earley, 60, a private attorney and graduate of the University of San Diego Law School, will replace retired Judge Kathy Hardcastle.
Hardcastle and Mosley retired earlier this year.
Both Escobar and Earley are running for those seats in the November general election, according to the Clark County Election Department. Escobar will face lawyer Michael Davidson in Department 14. Earley faces eight other candidates for the Department 4 judgeship.
