Category Archives: Med Mal Sweeps

During the Feb. 6 Med/Mal Sweeps, 378 cases were reviewed by Judge Jerry Wiese with attorneys present to determine if they were on track to meet the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS).

Med Mal Sweeps are done annually to review cases and ensure they are on track to comply with NRS 41A.061.1(b) which states: The court shall, after due notice to the parties, dismiss an action involving professional negligence if the action is not brought to trial within 3 years after the date on which the action is filed.

“We called a lot of cases and we got a lot done. The sweeps offer a good opportunity for attorneys to take stock of their cases to ensure that they are moving along as they should,” said Judge Wiese. ”Court staff did an excellent job preparing and keeping things moving with this large volume of cases. I appreciate the work that all those involved put in to get this done.”

Judge Wiese enters the status check process well prepared. Each judge who handles med/mal cases provides their stack of cases and other relevant information to Judge Wiese’s judicial executive assistant Tatyana Ristic who gets things in order so the process moves like clockwork.

NRS 41A.061.1(b) http://www.leg.state.nv.us/nrs/nrs-041a.html#NRS041ASec061

NRS 41A.061  Dismissal of action for failure to bring to trial; effect of dismissal; adoption of court rules to expedite resolution of actions.

1.  Upon the motion of any party or upon its own motion, unless good cause is shown for the delay, the court shall, after due notice to the parties, dismiss an action involving professional negligence if the action is not brought to trial within 3 years after the date on which the action is filed.
