Nevada State Judicial Department

Sec. § 4.280
Jurisdiction of justice of the peace with whom docket is deposited.

Any justice with whom the docket of his or her predecessor, or of any other justice, is deposited, has and may exercise over all actions and proceedings entered in such docket the same jurisdiction as if originally commenced before him or her. In case of the creation of a new county, or the change of the boundary between two counties, any justice into whose hands the docket of a justice formerly acting as such within the same territory may come, is, for the purposes of this section, considered the successor of such former justice.
