Please refer to the Justice Court Rules of Civil Procedures for specific information regarding civil actions. The following is only a brief overview. 

A civil action is brought to secure a legal remedy for individuals or corporate entities. Justice courts (courts of limited jurisdiction) have no jurisdiction/power to hear any case not specifically granted to the courts by statute. 

Our Court is able to issue protection orders against domestic violence, stalking and harassment, sexual assault, workplace harassment, harm to children, and high-risk behavior.

Justice courts have jurisdiction over most civil actions where the amount of damages in controversy does not exceed $15,000.  
About Civil Cases
Proceedings in civil cases are formal hearings with the purpose of dispensing justice between parties. Both the plaintiff and defendant may be represented by attorneys. The parties may also represent themselves.

See NRS 4.370 to read more about jurisdiction.
