High Court Strikes Term Limits For County Officials

(Carson City, NV)  —  A ruling has struck down term limits for some county officials in Nevada.

The state Supreme Court says a constitutional amendment which limits most elected officials to 12 years in office does not apply to certain county offices.  Sheriffs, district attorneys, clerks, recorders and auditors can serve as long as voters approve.

The decision upholds a lower court ruling that allowed a Churchill County DA who won a fourth term to stay in office.
