CARSON CITY, Nev. (Staff/AP) - UPDATE: The Nevada Commission on Judicial Selection has forwarded the application of Dixie Grossman to Governor Brian Sandoval for consideration to fill the judicial vacancy in the Second Judicial District Court, Dept. 2.

The judicial position was made vacant by the appointment in November of Judge Egan Walker to the Second Judicial District Court, Dept. 7. Grossman currently serves as a court master in the Second Judicial District Court – Family Division. Grossman was the only applicant for the position.

The job is to fill the seat until a successor is voted in this November. Grossman has filed to run in the election, as has Aaron Bushur.

ORIGINAL STORY: Nevada court officials say only one person has applied for a vacancy in Reno's Second Judicial District Court.

They say Dixie Grossman is the lone applicant for the vacancy left by Judge Egan Walker, who was appointed in November to another department in the district court.

Grossman currently is a court master in the Second Judicial District's family division.

The Nevada Commission on Judicial Selection says it will meet Feb. 14 on the matter.

They will determine if Grossman will be interviewed, if her name will be submitted to Gov. Brian Sandoval for his consideration without an interview, or if the selection process will start all over again.

Applicants for judicial vacancies must have 10 years of legal experience and two years of Nevada residency to be eligible.
