Sec. § 40.687
Disclosure of information concerning insurance agreements; compelled production of information.


Notwithstanding any other provision of law:
1. A contractor shall, no later than 10 days after a response is made pursuant to this chapter, disclose to the claimant any information about insurance agreements that may be obtained by discovery pursuant to rule 26(b)(2) of the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure. Such disclosure does not affect the admissibility at trial of the information disclosed.

2.

Except as otherwise provided in subsection 3, if the contractor fails to provide the information required pursuant to subsection 1 within the time allowed, the claimant may petition the court to compel production of the information. Upon receiving such a petition, the court may order the contractor to produce the required information and may award the claimant reasonable attorney’s fees and costs incurred in petitioning the court pursuant to this subsection.

3.

The parties may agree to an extension of time for the contractor to produce the information required pursuant to this section.

4.

For the purposes of this section, “information about insurance agreements” is limited to any declaration sheets, endorsements and contracts of insurance issued to the contractor from the commencement of construction of the residence of the claimant to the date on which the request for the information is made and does not include information concerning any disputes between the contractor and an insurer or information concerning any reservation of rights by an insurer.
