Case Synopsis

The Nevada Supreme Court considered whether a judgment debtor can claim a “wildcard exemption” from execution under NRS 21.090(1)(z) to protect earnings not already exempted by NRS 21.090(1)(g). The Court noted that the phrase “not otherwise exempted” applied to personal property, including earnings, that were not wholly exempt under NRS 21.090. Therefore, the Court affirmed the holding of the district court that the wildcard exemption can be used to protect any personal property, including enumerated property, that is not fully exempted by another subsection.
