Judge Needed Court Calendar Lags Reno Force 67 JACK NAMING OF A successor to the post made vacant by the un- timely death of Judge T F Moran has been considerably delayed by Governor Kirman Naming of a new judge for Department ber 1 of the Washoe District Court too quickly after the de- mise of the popular highly re- spected jurist would have shown a lack of tact and courtesy of which Governor Kirman would never have been guilty y But a successor should be named before the November tion Present indications are that the governor may not appoint a judge until that time He has made no comment when questioned He gives the impression that if a successor IS named it will be 9 some time before action is taken At present Judge Benjamin F Curler is shouldering the den handling his own work and that of the other department as well Various judges have at times offered aid but they also have been so busy the vast of the work has been done by Judge Curler The result is that Judge Curler is badly overworked the dar threatens to get far behind litigants face unnecessary and costly delays and the smooth routine expected of this tant court is disrupted Judge Curler is doing a did job keeps his court open far later than required in order to handle as many cases as possible But it is unfair to expect him to continue this for mother three months He has been doing it for months he handled the court during Judge Moran's ness and an additional months of this difficult work may possibly undermine his health too In all fairness a judge should be appointed by the governor Nevada laws require this we are told Statute 4812 reads in part Whenever any vacancy shall cur in the office of justice of the supreme court or district judge I or any state officer the governor SHALL fill same by granting a commission which shall expire at the next general election by the people This has been interpreted as a mandatory appointment of a cessor when such occur True no time limit is specified But in all fairness shouldn't the appointment be made quickly under the ONE WAY TO give ment to and at the same time beautify Reno would be for the city to demand that fers of vacant lots and unsightly yards clean them up Trees should be kept trimmed weeds cleared away grass kept reasonably under control j walks leveled In sorae of Reno actually have to detour step into the street and go around lots is the way such a tion is handled in many Owners are sent polite letters re- questing them to clean their property A reasonable time is given them in which to comply With the request But if no tion has been taken after the deadline has passed a crew of city employes is sent to the spot and the work done And the f is added to the owner's taxes at the end of the year Literally hundreds of Jobless could be given part time ment in this manner The city would improve greatly in ance And very few land owners would complain for their gence in the majority of instances is due to oversight
