Supreme Court Rules


All courts have "rules," which set forth the procedure courts follow when adjudicating civil lawsuits or appeals.  These rules govern such things as how a lawsuit is commenced, the types and content of documents that can (or must) be filed, the various deadlines that attorneys (and self-represented litigants!) must comply with, and the like.  Court rules can sometimes be complex, and there may be multiple rules – or even whole sets of rules – that apply in a particular court or to a particular case or situation.  But take the time to understand the procedural requirements of your court.  You can't win the game if you don't know the rules!

Here are links to some of the rules that might apply to an appeal in the Nevada Supreme Court.

CAUTION!  The Civil Law Self-Help Center does not maintain the court rules available via the links below.  Periodically, courts may amend their rules, and those amendments are not incorporated automatically into the rules linked to here.  Most rules have information near the top indicating the date through which amendments have been incorporated.  For recent amendments to the court rules, see the “Rule Amendments” link on the Nevada Supreme Court homepage.
