Nevada Remedies; Special Actions and Proceedings

Sec. § 34.450
Sickness or infirmity of party restrained; hearing may proceed or be adjourned.


Whenever, from sickness or infirmity of the party directed to be produced by any writ of habeas corpus, the party cannot, without danger, be brought before the judge, the officer or person in whose custody or power the party is may state that fact in the officer’s or person’s return to the writ, verifying the same by affidavit.


If the judge be satisfied of the truth of such allegation of sickness or infirmity, and the return to the writ is otherwise sufficient, the judge may proceed to decide on such return and to dispose of the matter as if such party had been produced on the writ, or the hearing thereof may be adjourned until such party can be produced.
