Case Synopsis

NuVeda challenged the district court’s decision to deny the motion to transfer the contempt hearing to another judge under NRS 22.030(3). NRS 22.030(3) is a peremptory challenge that allows accused contemnors the right to request a new judge if they request it in a timely and prompt manner. NuVeda requested a petition for writ of prohibition and mandamus. The Court found the district court did not err when they denied NuVeda's motion. The court emphasized that a party may waive its right to move for a new judge if they fail to make the request in a reasonably prompt manner. Therefore, the Court denied the petition.
