Case Synopsis

The Court was asked by the United States District Court for the District of Nevada to clarify the removal process of a constable who forfeited the office under NRS 258.007. The Court held that under NRS 258.007 forfeiture occurs automatically if the officer fails to timely become a certified category II peace officer. Thus, the Court stated that the Clark County Board of Commissioners (Board) has neither the authority nor need to remove a constable and additionally, quo warranto action is not warranted for removal under this statute.
