      NRS 15.010  Verification of pleadings.

      1.  In all cases of the verification of a

pleading, the affidavit of the party shall state that the same is true of the

party’s own knowledge, except as to the matters which are therein stated on the

party’s information and belief, and as to those matters that the party believes

it to be true. And where a pleading is verified, it shall be by the affidavit

of the party, unless the party is absent from the county where the attorneys

reside, or from some cause unable to verify it, or the facts are within the

knowledge of the party’s attorney or other person verifying the same.

      2.  When the pleading is verified by the

attorney, or any other person except the party, the attorney or other person

shall set forth in the affidavit the reasons why it is not made by the party.

      3.  When a corporation is a party, the

verification may be made by any officer thereof; or when the State, or any

officer thereof in its behalf, is a party, the verification may be made by any

person acquainted with the facts; except that in actions prosecuted by the

Attorney General, in behalf of the State, the pleadings need not, in any case,

be verified.

      4.  In all cases where, by the foregoing

provisions, the verification may be made by the attorney, such verification may

be by the attorney made on information and belief if the facts are not within

the attorney’s knowledge.

      5.  The affidavit may be in substantially

the following form and need not be subscribed before a notary public:


      Under penalties of perjury, the undersigned declares

that he or she is the ................................ (plaintiff, defendant)

named in the foregoing ................................ (complaint, answer) and

knows the contents thereof; that the pleading is true of his or her own

knowledge, except as to those matters stated on information and belief, and

that as to such matters he or she believes it to be true.

      NRS 15.030  Transfer of motion when judge unable to hear parties.  When a notice of a motion is given, or an

order to show cause is made returnable before a judge out of court, and at the

time fixed for the motion, or, on the return day of the order, the judge is

unable to hear the parties, the matter may be transferred by order of the judge

to some other judge before whom it might originally have been brought.

      [1911 CPA § 423; RL § 5365; NCL § 8912]

      NRS 15.040  Enforcement of order for payment of money.  Whenever an order for the payment of a sum of

money is made by a court, it may be enforced by execution in the same manner as

if it were a judgment.

      [1911 CPA § 424; RL § 5366; NCL § 8913]

      NRS 15.050  Vacation or modification of order made out of court without

notice.  An order made out of court

without notice to the adverse party, may be vacated or modified without notice

by the judge who made it, but such proceeding must be limited to the same record

upon which the order was made, or such order may be vacated or modified on

notice, in the manner in which others motions are made.
