Join State Legislators for a Reception Supporting the Formation of a Nevada Court of Appeals


Nevada state legislators invite members of the bar to join Kolesar & Leatham at a reception honoring the Supreme Court and supporting Nevadans for a Court of Appeals. Attending legislators include: Elliot Anderson, Greg Brower, Lesley Cohen, Wesley Duncan, Lucy Flores, Aaron Ford, Jason Frierson, Pat Hickey, Mark Hutchison, Justin Jones, James Ohrenschall, Michael Roberson and Tick Segerblom.


The reception will take place on Wednesday, October 9 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the offices of Kolesar & Leatham, 400 S. Rampart Blvd., Suite 400, Las Vegas. Hors d'oeuvres will be served and there will be an open bar. State Bar of Nevada President Alan Lefebvre will be on hand to address attendees.


Nevadans for a Court of Appeals is a bi-partisan political action committee focused on raising voter awareness of Nevada's need for a court of appeals. Nevada is currently one of only 10 states in the U.S. without a court of appeals.
