Nevada Judge Banned From Bench Working As Utah City Attorney

A former Nevada judge who was banned from the bench is working as a city attorney in Utah. The Deseret News reported Conrad Hafen became a Saratoga Springs assistant city attorney in January. The Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline censured Hafen following confrontations in his courtroom from 2014 to 2016. The Utah native lost a bid for reelection as a Las Vegas justice of the peace in 2016 and signed an agreement not to contest the censure or serve in a judicial position in February 2017. The disciplinary commission found Hafen abused his authority and failed to file written contempt-of-court filings.
