On behalf of all Nevadans, I thank Justice Saitta for her dedicated service as a judicial officer,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “Justice Saitta has been a personal friend of the Sandoval family and Kathleen and I are excited to watch her pursue this new chapter in her life. Her passionate advocacy for juvenile justice reform and protecting the most vulnerable in our community is unmatched and we are fortunate to continue working with her in this capacity.
I will issue a letter to Chief Justice Parraguirre officially notifying him of a vacancy on the Nevada Supreme Court. The Commission on Judicial Selection will begin its formal process and I will give careful and thoughtful consideration to Justice Saitta’s replacement,” concluded Sandoval.
