Rule 83. Rules by District Courts; Judge’s Directives
(a) Local Rules and District Court Rules.
(1) Local Rules. A judicial district may make and amend rules governing practice therein by submitting the proposed rules, approved by a majority of its district judges, to the Nevada Supreme Court for its review and approval. A local rule must be consistent with—but not duplicate—these rules. Unless otherwise ordered by the Supreme Court, a new or amended local rule takes effect 60 days after it is approved by the Supreme Court.
(2) Reference. The local rules of practice and the District Court Rules are referred to collectively in these rules as the local rules.
(3) Requirements of Form. A local rule imposing a requirement of form must not be enforced in a way that causes a party to lose any right because of a nonwillful failure to comply.
(b) Procedure When There Is No Controlling Law. In all cases not provided for by rule, the district courts may regulate their practice in any manner not inconsistent with these rules.
