Determination by official attorney whether or not to tender defense.
The official attorney shall determine as promptly as possible whether or not to tender the defense of the person submitting the request. Until the decision is made, the official attorney shall take appropriate action to defend or otherwise protect the time of the person submitting the request to file a responsive pleading.
In any case in which the official attorney determines not to defend, the official attorney shall give written notice to the person who requested the defense either:
Ten days before the date an answer or other responsive pleading must be filed with the court; or
If the defense has been commenced, 20 days before the time an application is made with the court to withdraw as the attorney of record in accordance with NRS 41.0346.
