Case Synopsis

On appeal from the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline, the Nevada Supreme Court considers whether, in the disciplinary proceedings for Las Vegas Municipal Judge George Assad, the Commission properly denied admission of Judge Assad’s proposed judicial ethics expert testimony; whether the Commission’s actions during the proceedings denied Judge Assad due process; whether the record demonstrates clear and convincing evidence to support the Commission’s finding that Judge Assad violated Canon 2A; and whether the Commission properly imposed a public censure against Judge Assad for violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct.
