CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - Chief Justice Mark Gibbons announced Monday he is not planning to run for a fourth term on the Nevada Supreme Court in 2020.

Gibbons was elected in 2002 and is the longest serving justice among the seven members.

“Since judicial election filing opens in January 2020, I wanted to make this announcement early so people interested in the position could decide to file for the office,” said Chief Justice Gibbons.

Prior to his election to the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Gibbons served as a District Court Judge in Clark County for six years. In 2001, he was elected Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial District Court by his fellow judges.
