Info about the Eighth Judicial District Court.

Since a state of emergency was declared in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, District Court has taken significant measures to keep court cases moving in a safe manner. New Administrative Order 22-02 pauses jury trials that are expected to take longer than a calendar week.

With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Clark County, it has become challenging for the court to complete lengthy jury trials. The disruption of trials raises concerns about potential mistrials, increased cost to litigants, and unnecessary inconvenience to jurors. At the same time, the Court is aware of the importance of continuing to conduct trials when possible. Therefore, jury trials that are expected to take longer than a calendar week are paused for 30 days from the date this order is filed. Jury trials that can be completed within a calendar week should move forward under the COVID-19 Jury Trial Plan and AO 21-09.
