Nevada Supreme Court to Address Backlog of Medical Malpractice Claims
Through this program, which is referred to as the "medical malpractice settlement marathon," two-member teams of senior judges will conduct settlement hearings during the month of May. The goal is to conduct eighteen or more conferences each week. Thus far, the response from plaintiffs willing to participate in the program has been great and the Court plans to extend the program into June if enough cases are added to the program.
If the program is successful, the long-term goal will be to conduct such marathons twice a year.
