Shuffling the deck: The role of the courts in problem gambling cases

Abstract

It is my pleasure and honor to introduce this article, written by Judge Cheryl Moss, a sitting family court judge for the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada. Judge Moss was first elected to the bench in 2000 and has extensive knowledge about problem gambling and the efforts of the judiciary to address problem gambling cases in Nevada. She was the first judge in Clark County to initiate a pilot program on problem gambling assessments for parents in child custody cases and has been recognized on multiple occasions for her advocacy and compassion for problem gamblers and their families. Problem gambling is particularly acute in a state like Nevada, with a long history of legalized gambling, and Judge Moss has been at the forefront of efforts to develop and modernize the state’s approach to individuals with gambling disorders who become involved in the legal system.
