On August 20, 2020, the Las Vegas Justice Court filed an order in the administrative matter regarding suspension of JCRLV 34(f)(3)(B), a rule that requires a tenant filing an affidavit in answer to a landlord’ s notice of eviction to include a copy of the original eviction notice, unless the tenant signs an unsworn declaration to indicate that the notice has been lost or destroyed. See Administrative Order #20-17 in re Suspension of JCRLV 34(f)(3)(B).
The order cites the court’s efforts to streamline a tenant’s ability to electronically file during COVID-19 pandemic and the current capabilities of Odyssey’ s Guide & File program. The order amends current procedures for processing eviction cases to alleviate the need for the tenant to include a copy of the original eviction notice. The order became effective immediately.
