Case Synopsis

The Court held that jury instructions must be aligned with a Nevada statute if the Nevada statute has plain meaning via “facially clear” language. Further, the Court determined there must be discretionary abuse by a district court if an appellate court over rules its decision regarding a motion to amend, a motion to compel discovery, a motion for case concluding sanctions, or a motion in limine regarding evidence. The Court concluded that NRS 600A.060 does not preclude a court from awarding attorney fees via other appropriate statutes.
