Case Synopsis

The Court reexamined whether NRS 41A.071's affidavit-of-merit requirement applies to claims for professional negligence, which it had answered only a few years ago in Fierle v. Perez. The Court held that the plain and unambiguous language of NRS 41A.071 indicates that professional negligence actions are not subject to its affidavit-of-merit requirement, which applies only to medical or dental malpractice actions.
