07/13/2017Order/ProceduralFiled Order. We consolidate these matters in the interest of judicial economy. We have determined that the minor child and Clark County Department of Family Services, which has legal custody of the minor child, should be listed as real parties in interest in Docket No. 73198. Further, the minor child should be listed as a real party in interest in Docket No. 73272. We direct the clerk of this court to amend the captions on this court's docket to conform to the captions on this order. Petitioners in Docket No. 73272 have filed a motion to stay the district court's order pending this court's consideration of the petition in that matter. The subject minor's attorney has submitted an opposition to the motion. Having considered the motion and opposition thereto, we conclude that a stay is warranted, and we therefore grant the motion. Real parties in interest Stephanie R., Joey R., and E.R., on behalf of respondents, shall have 30 days from the date of this order to file and serve answers. All petitioners shall have 15 days from service of the last-filed answer to file and serve any reply. Clark County Department of Family Services shall supplement its appendix with those transcripts once the transcripts become available. fn1[Petitioners in Docket No. 73198 failed to include the district court's written order in their appendix. fn1[Philip R. and Regina R. shall have 11 days from the date of this order to file and serve a copy of the district court's June 12, 2017, order as supplement to their appendix in Docket No. 73198.] fn4[Cause appearing, we grant the motion of the child's attorney to file an opposition and direct the clerk to file the opposition received June 29, 2017.] fn5[ Petitioners in Docket No. 73198 request, within their petition, a stay of the same district court order. In light of the stay granted herein, at this time, we take no action on the request for stay in Docket No. 73198.] fn6[ Any or all of these parties may file a joint answer, and each may file a single answer addressing both writ petitions.] fn7[Because the transcripts will be available to Philip R. and Regina R. once Clark County Department of Family Services supplements its appendix, we deny as moot Philip and Regina R.'s request for an order directing the district court to make those transcripts available to them.] Nos. 73198/73272.17-23397
