Rule 1.14. Time; judicial days; service by mail.

  • (a) In computing any period of time prescribed or allowed by these rules, by order of court, or by any applicable statute, the day of the act, event or default from which the designated period of time begins to run must not be included. The last day of the period so computed must be included, unless it is a Saturday, a Sunday, or a non-judicial day, in which event the period runs until the end of the next day which is not a Saturday, a Sunday or a non-judicial day, or, when the act to be done is the filing of a paper in court, a day on which weather or other conditions have made the office of the clerk of the district court inaccessible, in which event the period runs until the end of the next day which is not one of the aforementioned days. The County Clerk shall memorialize and maintain in a written log all such inaccessible days. When the period of time prescribed or allowed is less than 11 days, intermediate Saturdays, Sundays, and non-judicial days must be excluded in the computation.

    (b) If any day on which an act required to be done by any one of these rules falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the act may be performed on the next succeeding judicial day.

    (c) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (d) of this rule, whenever a party has the right or is required to do some act or take some proceedings within a prescribed period after the service of a notice or other paper, other than process, a motion for a new trial, a motion to vacate judgment pursuant to NRCP 59 or a notice of appeal, and the notice or paper is served upon the party by mail, either U.S. Mail or court authorized electronic mail, or by electronic means, three (3) days must be added to the prescribed period.

    (d) The three (3) calendar days provided for in paragraph (c) of this rule shall not apply to criminal proceedings due to the necessity of getting matters on the calendar as quickly as possible as provided for in EDCR 3.20.
