February 16, 2012
Washington, D.C.— Nevada Senator Harry Reid today announced that Judge Elissa Cadish has been nominated by President Obama to serve as a federal judge for the U.S. District Court, District of Nevada, in Las Vegas. Cadish has more than two decades of legal experience, and she currently serves as a judge in Nevada’s Eighth Judicial District Court. Senator Reid has worked throughout his career to increase the number of women serving on the federal bench in Nevada.
“Elissa Cadish is a highly respected legal mind who has earned the esteem of litigants, practitioners, and her colleagues as a judge in Nevada’s Eighth Judicial District Court,” Reid said. “Cadish has served Nevadans with distinction, and throughout her career she has exhibited integrity, thoughtfulness, and fairness. I am confident she will bring those qualities to the bench and make an outstanding federal judge. I look forward to her swift confirmation.”
After earning her law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, Cadish began her legal career in Nevada as a clerk for the Hon. Philip M. Pro in Nevada District Court, whose seat she will fill if she is confirmed. Before serving the people of Nevada as a judge, Cadish worked in private practice and focused on commercial litigation and employment law.
