Nevada conduct hearing delayed for Las Vegas judge

 

A disciplinary hearing is being postponed until at least mid-September for a Nevada judge accused of breaching ethics by presiding over cases involving a prosecutor with whom he had a romantic relationship.

 

Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones’ hearing before the state Commission on Judicial Discipline had been scheduled Monday in Las Vegas.
