Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino (“Rio”) and a third-party administrator appealed to district court a finding that Kathryn Phillips (“Phillips”), a Rio employee who fractured her ankle on a staircase during the course of her employment, was entitled to workers‟ compensation. The district court entered an order denying Rio‟s petition for judicial review. At issue is the standard applied to determine whether an employee seeking workers‟ compensation benefits has demonstrated that her injury “arose out of” her employment under NRS 616C.150(1) when her injury was caused by a neutral risk.
