On Oct. 23, 2023, the Nevada Supreme Court filed ADKT 0612 in which the Hon. Jerry A. Wiese, Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial District Court, and the Hon. Jacqueline M. Bluth, Chairperson of the Rules Committee of the Eighth Judicial District Court, petitioned the Nevada Supreme Court to adopt the proposed amendments to the Rules of Practice for the Eighth Judicial District Court set forth in Exhibits A-F.
The Eighth Judicial District Court solicited its judicial officers for rule amendment proposals and volunteers to serve on the Rules Committee. The Rules Committee included judicial officers from each division of the Eighth Judicial District Court and it received proposals from several judicial officers, judicial staff, and court employees. Certain rule proposals were also presented to the relevant bar sections for comments. Ultimately, the proposed amendments were approved by the Eighth Judicial District Court judges at an all-judges meeting on June 14, 2023.
Each of the attached Exhibits contains the grounds for the adoption, amendment, or repeal of certain rules with red lined versions of the proposed new or amended rules.
