The Nevada Intermediate Court of Appeals Amendment
may appear on the 2014 ballot
in the state of Nevada
as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment
. The measure would establish an intermediate court of appeals in the state. State Senator Michael Roberson
claimed that the state's courts are overloaded with cases, which is why the measure is being proposed. If approved, the court would use existing facilities to operate. According to reports, the measure's $1.3 million cost would be used for salaries and other staff requirements.
A similar measure was found on the November 2, 2010 statewide general election ballot, where it was rejected by voters.
