Kenny Guinn replaces judges

CARSON CITY – Gov. Kenny Guinn today named two judicial appointments to replace judges who recently retired from the bench. Reno resident Bridget Robb Peck has been named to fill the Second Judicial District, Department 7, seat vacated by the retirement of Judge Peter Breen, and Wayne A. Pederson of Yerington will serve as judge for the Third Judicial District, Department 2, replacing Judge Archie Blake. Both appointments are effective immediately. Peck and Pederson’s terms end on January 1, 2007.

“We are grateful and fortunate to have two outstanding individuals such as Bridget Robb Peck and Wayne Pederson to complete the terms of two retiring judges who had outstanding careers on the bench,” Gov. Guinn said. “The final candidates submitted by the Commission on Judicial Selection are all well qualified, making my decision very difficult. I am confident the legal experience Bridget and Wayne bring to these positions, along with their community service, has prepared them to take on these challenging roles.”

Peck, 43, is the managing shareholder for the Reno law firm of Beesley, Peck & Matteoni, Ltd. She previously worked at the law firms Lionel Sawyer & Collins, and Gordon, Silver & Beasley, Ltd. Peck graduated from Tonopah High School, and later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Reno. She graduated from the Santa Clara University School of Law with a Juris Doctorate degree in 1987.

Pederson, 53, the sole practitioner of his own Yerington law firm, was born and raised in Nevada. He has served in a wide variety of roles during his legal career. Pederson, a graduate of Reno High School and the University of Nevada, Reno, earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence degree from McGeorge School of Law in 1994.
