Nevada Supreme Court Releases 2012 Annual Report

The 2012 Annual Report is now available via the Nevada Supreme Court's website


This year's report is more than 50 pages long and shows that civil, criminal and juvenile case filings are down for the year, but nearly 2,000 more family law cases were heard statewide.  The report also covers the Foreclosure Mediation Program, the Indigent Defense Commission and the Commission on Judicial Selection among many others.  The court also discusses events, such as the Judicial Summit and many law-related education programs.

Second Judicial District Implements New System for Jurors 

The Jury Commissioner's Office for the Second Judicial District created a new automated system to help jurors and make the process of checking in for jury duty more streamlined and efficient. 


Jurors are now able to submit their juror questionnaire online instead of by hand. The information entered by the jurors goes directly into the court's system. 


The Jury Commissioner's Office also implemented a professional call-in system, known as IVR, allowing jurors to receive updates and instructions 24 hours a day.



Member Benefits: Batch Printing with Fastcase

It is possible to print up to 20 cases at a time using Fastcase. Here's how to do it:


Add documents to your print queue: Users can add documents to your print queue one of two ways.


  1. From the results page: Each case on your results list has a Print Queue icon to the left of the screen. The Print Queue icon looks like a printer with a plus sign on it. Click on the Print Queue icon to add a case to your queue. When the case has been added, the plus sign on the icon will turn into a minus sign.
  2. While browsing a case: Click on the Add to My Print Queue link at the top right of the screen. 

Review your queue: To review your print queue, select View Print Queue from the Print menu. To remove the case from your print queue, click on the icon again.


Print: Once you have made your formatting selections, click the Print/Save button. The cases listed on your print queue will begin downloading as a single document on your computer. Open the file using the appropriate program (e.g., Word, Adobe Acrobat, WordPerfect) and then print the document by selecting Print from the File menu.
