Nevada Supreme Court justice reporting for jury duty Monday

Lawyers and the judge in the David Paul Lane trial are in for a bit of a surprise when they see the jury pool on Monday

Among the 120 potential jurors called to serve in the trial accusing Lane of assault with a deadly weapon is none other than Mark Gibbons — chief justice of the Nevada Supreme Court.

Gibbons said he will definitely show up as ordered.

“It’s to point out to all citizens that, if they are called, it’s an honor and a privilege to serve,” he said.

“But I don’t know how long I’ll last,” he said. “We’ll see.”

Gibbons said Friday he doesn’t really know much about the case so he would probably qualify to serve. But it’s unlikely any lawyer wants a Supreme Court Justice on his jury.
