Eighth Judicial District Court Order Addresses Backlog and Delay of Trials

1/7/2022 5:03:29 PM

On December 30, 2021 the Eighth Judicial District Court (EJDC) filed an order in the administrative matter regarding jury trial settings, continuances, calendar call, and civil reassignment calendar.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the EJDC is experiencing a significant backlog and delay in the disposition of civil trials. The EJDC and the Nevada Supreme Court are working collaboratively to stress to Judges and attorneys the seriousness of the backlog, the adverse effect on the litigants and the importance of resolving matters in a safe, timely, and efficient manner.

As outlined in this order, any case ready to go to trial but unable to be tried by the trial judge to whom the case is presently assigned will be reassigned to an available trial judge to ensure the prompt and timely disposition of civil cases.
