CARSON CITY, NV February 13, 2019
Today, Governor Steve Sisolak announced that he has appointed Commissioner Bonnie A. Bulla of Las Vegas to the Nevada Court of Appeals. Bulla currently serves as discovery commissioner for the Eighth Judicial District Court.
“I couldn’t be prouder to appoint Commissioner Bulla to the Court of Appeals,” Governor Sisolak said. “Her decades of experience practicing law in Nevada, including her extensive time in public service, make her highly qualified to serve as an appellate judge. I am confident Judge Bulla will bring the same skill and integrity she has shown her entire career to the Court of Appeals.”
Bulla was appointed discovery commissioner for the Eighth Judicial District Court in January 2007. She received her J.D. from Arizona State University in 1987; that same year, she moved to Las Vegas and became a member of the Nevada Bar. While in private practice, she primarily handled cases involving professional negligence. Bulla has been a member of the American Bar Association, where she served as speaker of the Young Lawyers Division, the Nevada Justice Association, the American Trial Lawyers Association, and the Defense Research Institute. She is also past president of the Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys as well as the Las Vegas Chapter of the American Inns of Court. Bulla is a 2018 recipient of the Liberty Bell Award and was a member of the Nevada Supreme Court Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure Committee.
