Case Synopsis

In an election dispute, Berkus filed an action for declaratory judgment pursuant to NRS 281.050 asserting DeStefano was not a resident of the district in which he was running for office. DeStefano argued that the district court lacked jurisdiction to consider Berkus’ action because NRS 293.182 provided the exclusive method for challenging a candidate’s qualifications for office.
