Fourteen entries made for some heated competition at the Civil Bench Bar Chili cook-off. While those in attendance networked and got a rundown of the recent Nevada Supreme Court rulings as presented by Veronica Fink, Judge Linda Bell, Judge Doug Herndon and Judge Susan Johnson were busy judging the chili.

Competitors brought their A-game demonstrating creativity through ingredients and presentation.

These are the judges’ picks:

Best overall – Justin Corne (really his wife)

Spiciest- Mark Gentile

Most colorful – Judge Kathleen Delaney

Most elusive secret ingredient- Brian Berman

Most Creative – Lauren Calvert

The next Civil Bench-Bar meeting will be Feb. 13 at noon with guest speaker Jury Commissioner Mariah Witt who will provide valuable information that every attorney will want to know about voir dire.
