Pierce County District Court Judge Jack Nevin says he will run for an open seat on the superior court bench.

Nevin, a former deputy prosecutor and legal adviser to the Pierce County Sheriff’s office, was appointed to the district court in 1996. The 60-year-old University Place resident is a retired Army Reserve brigadier general with 33 years of active and reserve service in the Army.

He is running to replace Superior Court Judge Rosanne Buckner, who is retiring.

Nevin is an adjunct law professor at Seattle University with an extensive background in foreign courts. In February, he spoke to reporter Adam Ashton about spending a month as an independent observer at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Nevin also has worked on projects to rebuild the Iraqi justice system, served as presiding judge for a United Nations tribunal in Kosovo and advised the El Salvador government.

Nevin holds a law degree and masters degree in business administration. He and his wife, Cheryl, a physical therapist, live in University Place.
