Nev. R. Civ. P. 52
Subdivision (a) is amended to conform to the 1963 and 1983 amendments to the federal rule by providing that the court's judgment in a case tried without a jury shall be entered pursuant to Rule, that the court may make the findings of fact and conclusions of law required in nonjury cases orally and by including a reference to new subdivision (c) in the last sentence. The revised rule does not include the 1985 amendment to subdivision (a) of the federal rule. The last sentence is added to conform this rule with the change to Rule requiring that an order granting summary judgment set forth the undisputed material facts and legal determinations on which the court granted summary judgment.
The amendments to subdivision (b) are technical.
Subdivision (c) is added. It conforms to the 1991 amendment to the federal rule. The provision parallels revised Rule, but it applies to nonjury trials. It authorizes the court to enter judgment at any time that it can appropriately make a dispositive finding of fact on the evidence. The new subdivision replaces part of former Rule , which had authorized a dismissal at the close of a plaintiff's case if the plaintiff had "failed to prove a sufficient case for the court."
