Case Synopsis

In this case, the Nevada Supreme Court reviews the district court’s interpretation of a contractual covenant not to compete and a liquidated damages clause. The Court states that unless clearly erroneous, it will affirm a district court’s decision on whether a contract was breached or not. However, the Court does not have to use the district court’s construction of a contract to make that determination. The Court may use independent appellate review to construe contracts.
