Case Synopsis

Lyft challenged the district court’s decision overruling their objection to the discovery commissioner’s recommendation that medical examinations during civil discovery are governed under NRS 52.380, not the Nevada Rule of Civil Procedure (NRCP) 35. NRS 52.380 was created after the Court amended NRCP 35. Lyft requested a writ of mandamus requesting this Court to instruct the district court to vacate its order that NRS 52.380 controls the process. This Court finds that NRS 52.380 is unconstitutional as it conflicts with NRCP 35. The Court granted the petition to vacate the decision and requests the lower court to review the motions according to NRCP 35.
