How to Appeal a Court’s Decision in Nevada?
If you disagree with the final ruling in your case, you have the right to appeal the decision and have it brought to the appellate court for review.
Notice of Appeal
You have thirty days from the date of your final ruling to file an appeal with the district court where your case was held. When filing your notice of appeal, you will have to pay a $24 fee to the district court and another $250 to the Supreme Court. You must also post a bond of $500 guaranteeing payment of appeal costs.
You will also need to submit a Case Appeal Statement with the district court Clerk.
You are responsible for mailing a copy of the notice of appeal to the opposing attorney.
If you want to “stay” the execution of judgment (postpone the original decision) until your appeal is final, you may, by filling out a “supersedeas bond” with a justice court clerk. Within fifteen days after you filed your notice of appeal, you will need to request a copy of the transcript of the trial case. If you do not wish to use the transcript, you must file a "Certificate of No Transcript Request" with the clerk for the appellate court. If there was no transcript, then you must produce a Statement of the Evidence or Proceedings and disseminate it to all parties.
All parties are required to file briefs with the appellate court Clerk. The appellant brief is due within 120 days after the appeal is docketed. The appellee has thirty days to submit their brief ad the appellant has another thirty days to file a reply brief if required.
Infrequently the court may request oral arguments to be presented with the briefs.
All the evidence will be reviewed by a panel of three judges, and then a written opinion will be published in writing. All parties will receive a copy of the final result.
If you are unhappy with the result, you can request another review or take it to the Supreme Court.
