July 6, 2015 District Court to clear out medical and dental malpractice cases with annual sweep in August
The Nevada Revised statutes mandate that medical and dental malpractice cases are adjudicated within two years after the date on which the action is filed (if the action is filed on or after October 1, 2005). Unless good cause is shown for the delay, if a party files a motion, the court shall, after due notice to the parties, dismiss the case. To help ensure that the statute is met, the Civil Division of District Court is hosting the annual medical and dental malpractice status check calendar on August 3, in courtroom 15D at the Regional Justice Center The calendar will start with older cases between A-07 and A-14 first at 8:30 a.m.; with a second session for A-14 to A-15 at 1 p.m. The court will attempt to set all med/mal cases not already scheduled.
