In an opinion drafted by Justice Pickering, the Nevada Supreme Court considered whether the disgorgement portion of a securities-fraud judgment from British Columbia could be enforced in Nevada. The Court concluded that disgorgement judgments that serve as restitution do not constitute a penalty or fine under NRS 17.740(2)(b), and that the Canadian judgment was properly recognized by the district court under principles of comity.
