Case Synopsis

The Court determined two issues:1) whether NRCP 41(e)’s provision requiring dismissal for want of prosecution applies to an action in which the parties entered into a written and signed settlement agreement before NRCP 41(e)’s five-year deadline expired; and 2) whether the district court erred in reducing the parties’ settlement agreement to judgment. Summary written by Laura Guidry.
