Las Vegas Justice Court Issues Order Regarding Unlawful Detainer Cases, Including Summary Eviction

On Tuesday, March 24, 2020, the Las Vegas Township Justice Court issued Administrative Order 20-06, regarding unlawful detainer cases, including the supplemental remedy of summary eviction. According to the order, forcible entry and forcible detainer actions are not covered by Administrative Order 20-03; however, any landlord, real property owner or property  manager may by written ex parte motion electronically filed with the court, seek leave for exemption from Administrative Order 20-03.

Exemptions will only be granted when the asserted basis for the unlawful detainer action constitutes a danger to the community or is otherwise an emergency. This provision specifically excludes no-cause notices and non-payment of rent notices, which will not be considered for exemption.
