Case Synopsis

When a Motion for an Extension of Time to Serve the Summons and Complaint is filed after the 120-day deadline to serve, it must demonstrate good cause to explain why the motion is untimely. NRCP 12(b) does not impose a time limit on when a party can file a Motion to Dismiss for Insufficient Service of Process. It is timely so long as it is filed before a responsive pleading is filed.
