Case Synopsis

The Court first reviewed a due process violation claim, in a divorce action, which involved the first-to-file rule. The Court next reviewed the first-to-file rule and its purpose. In doing so, the Court officially adopted the Ninth Circuit’s three-step test for the first-to-file rule. The Court reversed and remanded, with instructions to the Nevada District Court to stay the proceeding until the issue of jurisdiction is resolved in the first court’s jurisdiction.
