As we updated earlier this week, Sessions, Israel & Shartle, LLC and Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP filed a Lawsuit and Motion for an Emergency Application for Temporary Restraining Order and Motion for Preliminary Injunction on behalf of multiple parties in response to Nevada Senate Bill 248.
We asked the Federal Court in Nevada to enjoin enforcement of the new medical collection bill prior to its effective date of July 1, 2021. Unfortunately, the court has decided to set a briefing schedule on the motion and has set a hearing for July 27.
The court was unwilling to consider the motion prior to July 1. As a result of this, the law will go into effect on July 1, 2021, and will require compliance with SB 248 when communicating with Nevada consumers regarding medical debts as of July 1.
