Reno attorney to lead commission that investigates judicial behavior

A Reno attorney with experience in business, real estate and corporate law has been named director of the Nevada Judicial Commission, which regulates the conduct of judges.

The commission said Wednesday it has chosen Paul Deyhle for the job of executive director and general counsel. It pays a maximum of $140,552 a year.

Deyhle is expected to start the new job by Nov. 1. He will succeed interim director Brian Hutchins, who has been filling in since the retirement of David Sarnowski.

The commission comprises two judges, two lawyers and three laypersons. Its duty is to investigate allegations of judicial misconduct or the disability of judges in Nevada.
