The investiture ceremonies for four Eighth Judicial District Court judges will take place at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30. The investitures for Judge Tara Clark Newberry, department 21; Judge Christy Craig, department 32; Judge Margaret Pickard, department V; and Judge Bita Yeager, department 1 will be live-streamed at Investitures are formal ceremonies with significant symbolism, as new judges publicly swear an oath to uphold justice prior to being ceremonially robed in front of family, friends and colleagues.

In the recent election, 22 new judges were voted in to serve on the bench of Nevada’s Eighth Judicial District Court; all were women. Some investitures were delayed due to the pandemic. The upcoming ceremony is the second of the two delayed investitures.
