Nevada Federal Court Rules I

Part II_-_Local Rules of Civil Practice

LR 3-1. CIVIL COVER SHEET.

Except in actions initiated by inmates appearing in pro se, every civil action tendered for filing in this court shall be accompanied by a properly completed civil cover sheet.


LR 4-1. SERVICE AND ISSUANCE OF PROCESS.

(a) The United States Marshal is authorized to serve summons and civil process on behalf of the United States.

(b) In those cases where service of process is authorized and sought pursuant to state and/or international procedure, counsel for the party seeking such service shall furnish the clerk with all forms and papers needed to comply with the requirements of such practice.


LR 5-1. PROOF OF SERVICE.

(a) All papers required or permitted to be served shall have attached when presented for filing a written proof of service. The proof shall show the day and manner of service and the name of the person served. Proof of service may be by written acknowledgement of service or certificate of the person who made service. The court may refuse to take action on any papers until proper proof of service is filed.

(b) Failure to make the proof of service required by this rule does not affect the validity of the service. Unless material prejudice would result, the court may at any time allow the proof of service to be amended or supplied.


LR 5-2. FACSIMILE FILING.

Papers may be filed with the clerk by means of telephone facsimile machine (“fax”) only in cases involving the death penalty as hereinafter provided:

(a) Documents that relate to stays of execution in death penalty cases may be transmitted directly to the fax machines in the clerk's offices in Reno or Las Vegas for filing by the clerk when counsel considers this will serve the interests of their clients.

(b) Counsel must notify the clerk before transmitting any document by fax. On receiving the transmitted document, the clerk shall make the number of copies required and file the photocopies. Any document transmitted directly to the court by fax must show service on all other parties by fax or hand delivery.

(c) When a document has been transmitted by fax and filed pursuant to this rule, counsel must file the original document and accompanying proof of service with the clerk within three (3) judicial days of the date of the fax transmission.


LR 6-1. REQUESTS FOR CONTINUANCE, EXTENSION OF TIME OR ORDER
SHORTENING TIME.

(a) Every motion requesting a continuance, extension of time, or order shortening time shall be “Filed” by the clerk and processed as an expedited matter. Ex parte motions and stipulations shall be governed by LR 6-2.

(b) Every motion or stipulation to extend time shall inform the court of any previous extensions granted and state the reasons for the extension requested. A request made after the expiration of the specified period shall not be granted unless the moving party, attorney, or other person demonstrates that the failure to act was the result of excusable neglect. Immediately below the title of such motion or stipulation there shall also be included a statement indicating whether it is the first, second, third, etc., requested extension, i.e.:
STIPULATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE MOTIONS
(First Request)

(c) The court may set aside any extension obtained in contravention of this rule.

(d) A stipulation or motion seeking to extend the time to file an opposition or final reply to a motion, or to extend the time fixed for hearing a motion, must state in its opening paragraph the filing date of the motion.


LR 6-2. REQUIRED FORM OF ORDER FOR STIPULATIONS AND EX PARTE
      MOTIONS.
(a) Any stipulation or ex parte motions requesting a continuance, extension of time, or order shortening time, and any other stipulation requiring an order shall not initially be “Filed” by the clerk, but shall be marked “Received.” Every such stipulation or ex parte motion shall include an “Order” in the form of a signature block on which the court or clerk can endorse approval of the relief sought. This signature block shall not be on a separate page, but shall appear approximately one inch (1_) below the last typewritten matter on the right-hand side of the last page of the stipulation or ex parte motion, and shall read as follows:

“IT IS SO ORDERED:

[UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE,
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE,
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CLERK
(whichever is appropriate)
DATED:

(b) Upon approval, amendment or denial, the stipulation or ex parte motion shall be filed and processed by the clerk in such manner as may be necessary.

(b) No stipulations relating to proceedings before the court except those set forth in Fed._R._Civ._P._29 shall be effective until approved by the court. Any stipulation that would interfere with any time set for completion of discovery, for hearing of a motion, or for trial, may be made only with the approval of the court.

(c) A dispositive stipulation, which has been signed by fewer than all the parties or their counsel, shall be treated as a motion.

(d) The clerk has authority to approve the stipulations described in LR 77-1.


LR 7-2. MOTIONS.

(b) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, points and authorities in response shall be filed and served by an opposing party fifteen (15) days after service of the motion.

(c) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, reply points and authorities shall be filed and served by the moving party eleven (11) days after service of the response.

(d) The failure of a moving party to file points and authorities in support of the motion shall constitute a consent to the denial of the motion. The failure of an opposing party to file points and authorities in response to any motion shall constitute a consent to the granting of the motion.


LR 7-3. CITATIONS OF AUTHORITY.

(a) References to an act of Congress shall include the United States Code citation, if available. When a federal regulation is cited, the Code of Federal Regulations title, section, page and year shall be given.

Where the court enters an order permitting a longer brief or points and authorities, the papers shall include an index and table of authorities.


LR 7-5. EX PARTE MOTIONS.

(a) All ex parte motions, applications or requests shall contain a statement showing good cause why the matter was submitted to the court without notice to all parties.
