Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure

Rule 81. Applicability of the Rules in General; Remanded Actions

(a)      To What Proceedings Applicable. These rules do not govern procedure and practice in any special statutory proceeding insofar as they are inconsistent or in conflict with the procedure and practice provided by the applicable statute.

(b)      Reserved.

(c)     Remanded Actions. A plaintiff whose action is removed from state to federal court and thereafter remanded must file and serve written notice of entry of the remand order. No default may be taken against a defendant in the remanded action until 14 days after service of written notice of entry of the remand order. Within that time, a defendant may move or plead as it might have done had the action not been removed.

(d)      Reserved.

Advisory Committee Note—2019 Amendment

The amendments delete the second and third sentences of former NRCP 81(a) as no longer needed and make stylistic revisions to NRCP 81(c).
