Suspended District Court Judge Elizabeth Halverson’s contention that she should be allowed to skip the upcoming election and run again in 2012 was rejected by the Nevada Supreme Court Thursday. The court decision said that the law allows the Legislature to create new judicial positions with initial terms of fewer than six years in order to place those positions on the same election cycle as district court judge positions generally. Halverson was elected to a two-year term in 2006 but argued before the Nevada Supreme Court in June that it’s unconstitutional to limit her term because judges typically serve six years.
