Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure

Rule 42. Consolidation; Separate Trials

(a)     Consolidation. If actions before the court involve a common question of law or fact, the court may:

(1)      join for hearing or trial any or all matters at issue in the actions;

(2)      consolidate the actions; or

(3)      issue any other orders to avoid unnecessary cost or delay.

(b)     Separate Trials. For convenience, to avoid prejudice, or to expedite and economize, the court may order a separate trial of one or more separate issues, claims, crossclaims, counterclaims, or third-party claims. When ordering a separate trial, the court must preserve any right to a jury trial.
