Case Synopsis

This is a consolidated challenge, consisting of three cases, by the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office against the Second Judicial District Court’s ability to compel the D.A.’s office to participate in a record-sealing proceeding if it chooses to neither stipulate nor oppose the petition to seal. The Nevada Supreme Court granted the Washoe County D.A.’s writ petitions and ruled that if the D.A.’s Office chooses not to participate in a proceeding, the district court does not have the ability to compel it to do so.
