Nevada Revised Statutes Section 177.267 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Time within which Supreme Court shall render opinion on appeal from judgment of death.

1. An appeal to the Supreme Court from a judgment of death or the review of such a judgment by that Court must be decided and an opinion rendered within 150 days after the Court has received the record on appeal from the clerk of the sentencing court. If an opinion is not rendered within that time, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court shall state on the record the reasons which caused the delay and the facts supporting those reasons.

2. Any failure of the Court to comply with the requirements of this section is not a ground for setting aside the judgment of death.
