      [1911 CPA § 837; RL § 5779; NCL § 9326]—(NRS A 2001, 29)

      NRS 68.030  Execution may issue on entry of judgment on docket of justice of

the peace.  From the time of entry

of judgment on the docket of the justice of the peace, execution may be issued

thereon by the justice of the peace to the sheriff of any county in the State,

in the same manner and with like effect as if issued on a judgment of the

district court.

      [1911 CPA § 839; RL § 5781; NCL § 9328]—(NRS A 1969,

183)

      NRS 68.040  Judgment becomes lien when abstract recorded with county

recorder.  A judgment rendered in a

justice court creates no lien upon any lands of the defendant, unless an

abstract is recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county in

which the lands are situated. When so recorded and from the time of the

recording, the judgment becomes a lien upon all the real property of the

judgment debtor, not exempt from execution, in the county, owned by the

judgment debtor at the time, or which the judgment debtor acquires before the

lien expires. The lien continues for 6 years, unless the judgment is previously

satisfied.

      [1911 CPA § 840; RL § 5782; NCL § 9329]—(NRS A 1985, 741; 2001, 1750)

      NRS 68.050  Judgments by confession.  Judgments

upon confession may be entered up in any justice court specified in the

confession.
