Supreme Court names Guardianship Commission members

Supreme Court Names Guardianship Commission Members
 
The Nevada Supreme Court has selected 20 Nevadans to serve on the Permanent Guardianship Commission established by the court. Justice James W. Hardesty was named the chairperson of the permanent commission. The commission is made up of judges, private and public guardians, lawyers and statewide representatives.
 
The commission will make recommendations to the Nevada Supreme Court for statewide rules to aid in administering guardianship cases pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 159, and provide review and oversight for the implementation of new laws enacted during the 2017 Legislature to reform Nevada's guardianship statutes.
 
The Commission to Study the Administration of Guardianships in Nevada's Courts proposed seven major reforms to Nevada's guardianship statutes, resulting in five bills approved in the Legislature and signed by Governor Brian Sandoval.
 
Enacted by legislation were: Creation of a State Guardianship Compliance Office in the Administrative Office of the Courts, with investigators and accountants to review the administration of guardianship cases; a Guardianship Bill of Rights; and mandatory appointment of legal counsel.
