Rule 8.06. Service on parties; time to respond or act.

  • (a) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (b) of this rule, notwithstanding any prior Order of this Court, whenever a party has the right or is required to do some act or file same within the prescribed response period after the service of a notice or other paper, other than process, and the notice or paper is electronically served upon the party, three (3) calendar days must be added to the prescribed period.

    (b) The three (3) calendar days provided for in paragraph (a) 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.

    (c) This extension shall not extend the time for filing:

            (1) a motion for a new trial;

            (2) a motion to vacate judgment pursuant to NRCP 59; or

            (3) a notice of appeal.

    (d) Electronic service is complete at the time of transmission of the service required by Rule 8.05(a). For the purpose of computing time to respond to documents received via electronic service, any document served on a day or at a time when the court is not open for business shall be deemed served at the time of the next opening of the court for business.
