Nevada confusion

Some things happening in Nevada recently had me confused, so I hunted around for answers. My confusion and the answers:

1. Kucinich won a ruling to be included in NBC's debate. But he wasn't on the stage.

Turns out the Nevada supreme court ruled against him at the last minute. I didn't see the coverage of this event.

2. Broadcasters are referring to a "Nevada primary" to be held this Saturday. But when I looked on the Secretary of State's website I see that the Nevada primary isn't until August.

Turns out the Nevada caucus is this Saturday. Different animal. Someone should explain this to the announcers.
