Of note, Judge Cathleen Brown Nichols is the first Coconino County Superior Court Judge to be “retained” on the bench since the voter-approved 2018 Proposition 416 which eliminated election of judges and authorized appointment of judges to the bench. Judges, once appointed or seated, are subject to retention elections every four years. Judge Brown Nichols was the first judge to be subject to the retention election and was retained by the voters of Coconino County.
