      Rule 34.  Summary evictions.

      (a) If a tenant has filed an answer in response to a notice, the court will not schedule a hearing on the summary eviction until the complaint is on file with the court.

      (b) Upon the filing of the complaint:

             (1) If the tenant has filed a timely answer, a hearing on the summary eviction will be set. This hearing will be set within 1 week of the filing of the complaint or at such other time convenient to the court. The court will provide notice of hearing to all applicable parties via mail if time permits, or telephonically.

             (2) If the tenant has not filed a timely answer, the court will process the complaint as a “straight summary eviction” with no hearing scheduled.

      (c) A tenant must answer to a notice within the time required by law. No late answers will be accepted by the court.

      (d) When a timely answer is filed, the answer will be processed at the clerk’s office and held in a “30-day file” until such time as the complaint is filed by the landlord. An answer filed with the court will expire and will not be processed more than 30 days after the expiration of the applicable notice.

      (e) If a complaint is not filed within 30 days after the expiration of the applicable notice, the corresponding notice will be deemed to be expired, and a new notice will be required before the landlord can proceed with a summary eviction.

      (f) All summary eviction paperwork must comply with the following requirements:

             (1) Notice issued to tenant.

                   (A) Notices must be typed or clearly legible.

                   (B) Notices may not be altered in any way.

                   (C) Notices must advise the tenant that the Pahrump Justice Court (or some similar specific reference) has jurisdiction over the matter. Notices that merely refer to “the justice of the peace,” or “Nye County Courthouse,” or some other nonspecific designation will not be valid.

                   (D) If a landlord has issued more than 1 notice to the tenant within 1 rental period, and the tenant has filed an answer with respect to any of those notices, the court may consolidate for hearing all pending notices and answers.

             (2) Landlord filing.

                   (A) The complaint may not be filed prior to the expiration of the applicable notice.

                   (B) In conjunction with the complaint, the landlord must also file:

                          (i) A copy of the applicable notices;

                          (ii) An original Affidavit of Service; and

                          (iii) Where required by law, a legible certificate of mailing that contains the complete address of the tenant and a legible postmark from a United States post office. (A postage meter or private mail service will not be accepted.) If the certificate of mailing is less than 8.5 x 11 inches, it must be mounted on 8.5 x 11-inch paper. No alterations to the certificate of mailing can be made or the complaint will be rejected as an incomplete filing.

                   (C) The landlord shall pay the requisite filing fees.

             (3) Tenant answer.

                   (A) The tenant must pay the requisite filing fee or include a written In Forma Pauperis request.

                   (B) The answer must include a copy of the original notice, unless the tenant signs an unsworn declaration to indicate that the notice has been lost or destroyed.

      (g) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, an order for summary eviction shall expire 30 days after the order is issued. Such expiration must be conspicuously stated on the order for summary eviction.

      (h) As used in this rule, “complaint” means an Affidavit of Complaint for Summary Eviction.

      Rule 35.  In Forma Pauperis.

      (a) All In Forma Pauperis (IFP) requests must be approved by a judge before the related filings will be processed by the court.

      (b) If an IFP request is denied, and the requesting party provides a telephone number on the IFP request, the court will call the requesting party by telephone to inform the party of the ruling and to request payment of the filing fees if that party desires to proceed. The party must pay the applicable fee no later than 5 p.m. on the second judicial day following the telephone call by the court. If the requesting party fails to provide the court with a telephone number on the IFP request, the fees must be paid no later than 5 p.m. on the second judicial day following the court’s denial of the IFP request. If payment of the appropriate filing fees is not made within the applicable period set forth above, any documents relating to the IFP request will be returned to the initiating party by mail.

      (c) If the IFP is approved, the related documents will be processed as if the appropriate fees had been paid.

      (d) Unless the judicial order granting the IFP explicitly states otherwise:

             (1) A granted IFP request only applies to the one related action in justice court; and

             (2) A granted IFP request only applies to court costs and fees and does not waive bond requirements, security requirements, or court reporter compensation (including transcript costs).

      (e) In accordance with NRS 12.015, if a Statement of Legal Aid Representation is submitted, the fees set forth in NRS 12.015 will be deemed automatically waived in the Pahrump Justice Court without the need for a court order in individual cases. The Statement of Legal Aid Representation may only be filed by a “client of a program for legal aid” as defined in NRS 12.015, or that client’s attorney, and must indicate the specific entity that is providing legal assistance to the indigent party.

      (f) IFP requests for summary eviction cases shall be governed by the provisions of Rule 41.

      [Added; effective June 25, 2020.]

      Rule 36.  Service of documents upon the court.

             (2) Competency evaluation reports and alcohol, mental health, and substance abuse evaluation reports;

             (3) An unfiled written stipulation and order to continue a hearing signed by both parties may be submitted to chambers prior to the time of hearing by hand delivery or regular mail only. The court may remove the hearing from the calendar or require the parties to appear and put the stipulation on the record. If the hearing is removed from the calendar, the court will set a new hearing upon receipt of the original stipulation and order. The mere filing of a stipulation to continue or vacate a hearing, however, does not guarantee that the hearing will be continued or vacated. If the court does not issue an order continuing or vacating the hearing, the parties must appear and be prepared to proceed with the hearing.

             (4) Immediately below the title of any motion or stipulation to continue a hearing there shall also be included a statement indicating whether it is the first, second, third, etc., requested continuance of a hearing.

      (b) The parties may not stipulate to remove a trial, preliminary hearing, or evidentiary hearing without also obtaining court approval by order.

      (c) A party may file an ex parte motion to continue a hearing, explaining why it could not be obtained by stipulation. Such a motion must be supported by affidavit. The court may:

             (1) Grant or deny the motion; or

             (2) Require that notice be given to all other parties if it had not already been given and entertain a summary written response to the request or conduct a telephonic conference within a time to be specified by the court of not less than 1 judicial day.

      (b) Upon the filing of a motion to stay under subsection (a), any pending eviction order shall be stayed until further order of the court.

      (c) A motion to stay will be reviewed by the court within 1 judicial day.

      (d) If a tenant answer has not been filed in an eviction case, a motion to stay must be accompanied by the appropriate filing fee, except as otherwise provided in Rule 41.

      (e) Unless the reviewing judge so orders, a motion to stay will not be set for hearing but instead will be approved or denied ex parte.

      (f) Any hearing on a motion to stay must be scheduled within 7 judicial days from the date the motion is approved for hearing.

      (g) If a motion to stay is set for hearing, the landlord may file a written opposition to the motion.

             (2) All orders issued by the court.

             (3) If the court intends to conduct a hearing to consider only whether a temporary order for protection should be issued, no notice to the adverse party is required.

      Rule 41.5.  Bonds for temporary writs of restitution.

      (a) When a plaintiff has filed a bond pursuant to NRS 40.300, the court will automatically return that bond to the posting party if the plaintiff voluntarily dismisses the case under JCRCP 41(a) or after the case has proceeded to a judgment in the plaintiff’s favor. A plaintiff shall not voluntarily dismiss a case within 30 days following execution of any writ of restitution.

      (b) In the event that the case proceeds to a judgment in the defendant’s favor, the defendant may file a motion to recover under the bond.
