Case Synopsis

Two pharmaceutical wholesalers appeal from the district court’s denial of a petition for judicial review of an order by respondent Nevada State Board of Pharmacy (the Board) revoking the wholesalers’ licenses for violations of Nevada’s statutes and regulations governing the secondary prescription drug market. The wholesalers appeal on multiple grounds, three of which raise issues of first impression: (1) an administrative agency’s discretion concerning joinder in an administrative proceeding; (2) an administrative agency’s discretion with respect to discovery in an administrative proceeding; and (3) whether intent must be proven to render an entity liable for violating NRS § 585.520(1).2
