Nevada’s Supreme and Intermediate Appellate Courts are going virtual until it’s safe to hold in-person hearings.
The court issued a statement Tuesday saying attorneys will
appear from remote locations to make oral arguments before the court at the end
of May and into June.
The Court of Appeals will start with oral arguments May 27
at 10 a.m. The Supreme Court will follow suit at 1:30 p.m. on June 1.
The statement said unless otherwise ordered in a specific
case, there will be no in-person attendance at arguments by counsel, the
parties or the public.
The appellate courts have routinely used video conferencing
systems for meetings between Carson City and Las Vegas. These hearings will be livestreamed
using the same system at https://nvcourts.gov/supreme
so the public and others interested can watch and listen.
