District Court E-filing is getting upgraded with the highly anticipated File and Serve roll-out beginning in April. The roll-out is scheduled to be completed by the end of May. The goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. Once File and Serve is activated, the former system will continue to be available for approximately 30 days.

Further updates will be communicated as they develop. The court will hold training sessions at the Regional Justice Center and the Family Court campus. Law firms or those who are unable to make one of the sessions can make arrangements for one-on-one training. Details on how to request this training will be announced prior to April 17. A training video is also available at https://tylertech.egain.cloud/kb/nvh5/list/242400000011494

Meanwhile, users can self-register for File and Serve so that you are ready to start filing on April 17 by going to https://nevada.tylerhost.net/OfsWeb/

There are many advantages to File and Serve including: the Envelope Feature which enables the filer to bundle multiple filings (all must be same case number) into one envelope for just one $3.50 flat-fee. Filers can submit an Answer, Initial Appearance Fee Disclosure (IAFD) and Demand for Jury Trial in one envelope for a total of $3.50 thereby saving $7.00 on the cost of two documents (if filed separately).

The Issuing Summons feature enables the clerk to electronically issue Summons’ through the new site. Simply submit the Summons at the same time you submit the Complaint (using the envelope feature) and once the Clerk processes the Complaint and assigns a case number, the Summons can be issued. The Summons and Complaint will be returned to the filer ready to be served. These new features will cut steps and save the time previously required to present the Summons’ to the Clerk’s office for issuance after the case had been initiated and a case number assigned through electronic filing.

Defaults and Writs of Execution can also be submitted electronically for review and issuance saving a trip to the Clerk’s office.

Template Functionality enables users to easily set up reusable templates for common new case initiation as well as subsequent filings. This feature can be used to save time and ensure accurate filings.

The E-Check Feature enables payment with checking account information for only $1 per filing/envelope.

Important  Dates: April 17 File and Serve will be available for new filings.

May 15 The legacy E-Filing system will be turned to read only and all new filings must be done by File and Serve.

The public is invited to provide written and signed comments regarding candidates for a hearing master position for the Eighth Judicial District Alternative Dispute Resolution Program (ADR). The public input will be part of a three-tiered recruitment process established in an administrative directive for selecting District Court hearing masters and commissioners. Input on the final three candidates can be e-mailed to the Eighth Judicial District Human Resources manager’s office EJDCHRManagersOffice@clarkcountycourts.us or mailed to 200 Lewis Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89155. The public comment period will be open until Thursday, April 6 at 5:01 p.m.

The candidates listed below are finalists who have already been through an application review committee and an oral panel interview. The public input on these candidates will go to a selection panel for the third and final tier of the hiring process.

  • Paul Haire
  • James Chrisman
  • Erin Truman

All of the candidates are attorneys who are members of the State Bar of Nevada in good standing. The selected hearing master will be assigned to the specialty courts and responsible for hearing matters and rendering legal opinions and decisions in relevant case law.

“Hearing masters serve an important role for the courts. The public comment period helps to ensure that the community has a voice and that candidates for the job of hearing master are thoroughly vetted,” said Eighth Judicial District Court Chief Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez.

A class of fourth graders got an education on the justice system when they sat through the court calendar of District Court Judge Douglas Herndon. They then got to test their chops in a court of law with a mock trial: The Ministry of Magic vs. Harry Potter. The students from the Meadows School were prepped by their teacher for their day in court. They played the roles of judges, jury, attorneys and witnesses. The fabulous fourth graders peppered Judge Herndon with questions; he in turn, grilled them about what they learned. They appeared to have learned a lot. Two more mock trials are scheduled with Judge Herndon April 18 and May 4 at 10 a.m. in courtroom 16D at the Regional Justice Center.

Attorneys who attended the February Civil Bench Bar Meeting learned how new technology is changing things at District Court. Court CEO Steven Grierson gave a behind- the-scenes look at how things get done. He gave a first-hand look at a new tool used by the court to live-track District Court E-filings. The March 14 noon Bench Bar meeting in courtroom 3A will offer up more useful information including: an overview of February Nevada Supreme Court decisions and what they mean, security and what is being done to keep the courthouse safe, and hot topics around the Eighth. This month’s visitor is Bryan Scott, the President of the State Bar of Nevada.

 

Attorneys who attend the Bench Bar meetings are first to hear the latest information coming out of the Civil Division of the Court in terms of technology, rules and trends.

 

The January Civil Bench Bar meeting was informative, entertaining and delicious because lunch was served up in the form of a chili-cookoff. Judge Linda Bell took first prize in the blind chili taste test contest.
