NRS 463A.140
Hearing: Contempt.

If any person in proceedings before the Commission disobeys or resists any lawful order or refuses to respond to a subpoena, or refuses to take the oath or affirmation as a witness or thereafter refuses to be examined, or is guilty of misconduct during the hearing or so near the place thereof as to obstruct the proceeding, the Commission may certify the facts to the district court in and for the county where the proceedings are held. The court shall thereupon issue an order directing the person to appear before the court and show cause why the person should not be punished as for contempt. The court order and a copy of the statement of the Commission shall be served on the person cited to appear. Thereafter the court has jurisdiction of the matter, and the same proceedings shall be had, the same penalties may be imposed and the person charged may purge the contempt in the same way as in the case of a person who has committed a contempt in the trial of a civil action before a district court.
