The Petitioners are estopped from filing their notice of voluntary dismissal under NRCP 41(a)(1)(A)(i) because they had waited four years before filing their notice of voluntary dismissal, and the Respondents had incurred significant litigations costs. The Petitioners had triggered the advanced-stage exception to NRCP 41(a)(1)(A)(i). Accordingly, the Nevada Supreme Court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion by vacating the Petitioners’ notice of voluntary dismissal.
