Case Synopsis

When NRS 11.202(1) was amended, it changed the statute of repose from six years to ten years. The amendment specifically intended to be applied retroactively, rather than the usual prospective application. The Supreme Court reversed, saying the District Court erred when it denied an altered motion from Panorama Towers Condominium Unit Owners’ Association against the builders for defects. The amendment’s change from six to ten years for the statute of repose meant the nine-year-old settlement fell within the new time period and summary judgment as a result of time was inappropriate.
