The report summarizes the 2013 legislative actions of significance to the Nevada judiciary. It also contains the text of the State of the Judiciary Message delivered by Chief Justice Pickering to the Nevada Legislature on March 1, 2013, and statistics provided by the trial courts.

 

The 52-page report is available to the public as a printed document at the Administrative Office of the Courts in Carson City or Las Vegas. It can also be accessed and downloaded from the Supreme Court website.
