Case Synopsis

The Court determined three issues: (1) whether a nonresident defendant is subject to personal jurisdiction in Nevada when the sole basis asserted is her adult child’s unilateral act of driving the defendant’s vehicle in Nevada; (2) whether a defendant’s filing of a motion to consolidate in a Nevada court waived her right to object to the court’s exercise of personal jurisdiction over her; and (3) whether an interpleader action filed by a defendant’s car insurance company subjects its insured to personal jurisdiction in Nevada.
