Case Synopsis

Under NRS 612.530(1), parties have 11 days after the NESD Board of Review's decision is finalized to request judicial review. NRCP 6(d) provides a three-day extension for parties to act after they are served by mail. While the Court once interpreted NRCP 6(d) to extend NRS 612.530(1)’s deadline2, the Court found that the statute’s clear language does not allow for an extension because it focuses on the date the decision is finalized, not the decision’s service date. The Supreme Court of Nevada thus held that NRCP 6(d)'s three-day mailing rule does not influence the timeframe set by NRS 612.530(1).
