WIth all the circus happening in Nevada in a very compelling case of judicial misconduct aganist Judge Elizabeth Halverson, this case is making Nevada taxpayers angry as this case is making national attention. Why does this make Nevada Taxpayers angry:
- Judge Halverson as a suspended judge is still collecting on her $130,000 a year salary despite she is suspended.
- The Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline is paying $150 a hour for a special prosecutor that is prosecuting Judge Halverson. The trial has went on for seven days and averaged 10 hours a day. That is $10,500 of Nevada’s taxpayer dollars.
- If you got subponeaed as long you were not a laywer or judge, you were paid to testify, $25 plus mileage of 58.5 cents a mile.
- The Commission members traveled from way up-north in Nevada by Reno and Carson City, and these members are entitled to a $85 dollar a day per-diem like Wisconsin Legislators do.
This simple hearing, turned into a dog and pony show by Judge Elizabeth Halverson shows this case has really costed the taxpayers of Nevada.
