GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — The Las Vegas Sun reports Retired District Judge Norman Robison of Gardnerville died Sunday in the Carson Tahoe Hospital after a short illness. He was 78.

In July 2006, he was commissioned as a senior judge serving in that capacity until June 2015, according to the Nevada Supreme Court.

Chief Justice James W. Hardesty of the Nevada Supreme Court said of Judge Robison, “He was a dedicated, caring, and affable public servant, serving first as a District Judge in Douglas County and then willingly serving anywhere in Nevada that the Supreme Court needed him as a Senior Judge. Judge Robison continued the long history of fair, thoughtful, independent minded rural district court judges. He resolved thousands of cases with dignity and made a major contribution to the Nevada District Judges Association throughout his judicial career. The entire legal community offers its condolences to his family.”
