CARSON CITY — The Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday threw out a child custody case filed by the former girlfriend of District Judge Donald Mosley because she failed to pay a $250 filing fee.
The court dismissed the case filed by Terry Mosley because she failed to pay the fee as required by Oct. 12.
An earlier court order directed her to pay the fee or file legal documents with the District Court that declared her as a pauper who is exempted from the fee.
Terry Mosley, acting as her own attorney, filed a lawsuit that challenged a 2006 decision by Senior Judge Noel Manoukian that gave Donald Mosley joint custody of their teenage son.
Before that decision, she had primary custody of the boy.
In her lawsuit, she alleged that Donald Mosley held inappropriate chats with Manoukian outside her presence.
She also said Donald Mosley had "no interest in actually" rearing their child but was contesting the custody arrangement because he wanted to have control and avoid paying child support.
The pair have sparred in several court cases for years over custody arrangements.
