Governor Brian Sandoval today announced he has appointed Nathan “Tod” Young to the Ninth Judicial District Court, Department 1 vacancy.

“Tod’s breadth of experience which comes from owning his own law practice to serving as an arbitrator will serve as a strong foundation for the bench,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “Combined with having served as a legal guardian, I am confident that Tod will be a valuable addition to the Ninth Judicial District Court.”

Young, who currently owns his own practice in Minden, is a graduate of Mississippi College School of Law. During law school, Young worked for Legal Services of Southern Ohio as a law clerk and in the law school library. He was Moot Court Board Chairman from 1982 until 1983 and won the Robert G. Gillespie Award for Outstanding Oral Argument in 1981 and 1982. From 1982 until 1983, Young was the Associate Editor of the Student Newspaper, The Legal Eye.

Young was admitted to the Nevada bar in 1985. From February 1994 through March of 1999, Young was Managing Partner of Beavers and Young, P.C. in Minden. Over the last five years, 90% of Young’s work has been related to litigation and trial courts. Since 1997 he has served as an arbitrator and been appointed as arbitrator by Courts in the First, Second and Ninth Judicial Districts.

He has served as an adjunct professor and a guest lecturer at Truckee Meadows Community College and Western Nevada Community College. From 2007 until 2010, Young was a guest lecturer for the State of Nevada Department of Public Safety Cadet Training.
