“It’s in the rules – read the rules,” was a well-worn mantra from Commissioner Chris Beecroft Jr.  in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) at District Court. Chris passed away on Dec. 26, 2016. In addition to his work in Discovery, Commissioner Beecroft oversaw the Alternative Dispute Resolution and the Short Trial programs. He was considered a pioneer for ADR in Southern Nevada. On Nov. 15, the State Bar of Nevada ADR section unveiled  a plaque to commemorate his work outside of the discovery courtroom on the fifth floor of the Regional Justice Center. Attorneys, court officials, his former staff and his family were in attendance.

The Eighth Judicial District Court Discovery Commissioner Bonnie Bulla today announced that Discovery will discontinue the practice of receiving courtesy copies of Case Conference Reports submitted by parties in cases. An electronic system has been implemented that tracks newly filed reports. “I am pleased to announce this change that will streamline processes for counsel and save time and resources,” said Commissioner Bulla. “We continue to look for ways to improve the Discovery process and maximize efficiency.”

Judge Kathleen Delaney had a fifth grade class from St. Viator’s sit in on her calendar. After watching the wheels of justice turn in the courtroom, the wheels in the students’ minds were turning. They asked the judge some very thoughtful questions. One student got a big laugh when he asked the judge if she ever got frustrated with what happens in court.

Students from the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law spent part of their spring break in an alternative program where they learn about the practice of law and the courts. They sat in on court, attended a judges meeting and got some Q&A time in with the judges.

District Court is involved in a number of initiatives to educate students about the justice system.

Discovery Commissioner Bulla has made changes to the discovery procedures for the Report and Recommendations. The parties only have to submit the original Report and Recommendations. Copies are no longer required.

Pursuant to N.E.F.C.R.  9, after Commissioner Bulla signs the Report and Recommendations , the parties will be served with notice pursuant to EDCR 2.34(f) via e-service through Wiznet .  The new Report and Recommendation form with the new notice page is now available at the Clark County Website – http://www.clarkcountycourts.us/ejdc/courts-and-judges/discovery/discovery.html

The time to object to the Report and Recommendations will continue to be eight (8) judicial days from the date of e-service and the parties are still required to timely provide Commissioner Bulla’s office with a file stamped courtesy copy of any Objection.  If a file stamped copy of the Objection is not available before the objection time expires, a copy of the details of filing from Wiznet will be accepted.

Run slips submitted with the original Report and Recommendations to the Discovery Commissioner, will remain attached to the document when forwarded to the District Court Judge. Once the Report and Recommendations is signed by the District Court Judge, it will be available for pick up by your runner service from the Department.
