Case Synopsis

The Nevada Supreme Court ruled that the prejudgment interest awarded to Chapman should have been calculated pursuant to the specific interest statute, rather than the general interest statute, because the special interest statute was in effect when the judgment was entered. The district court had erred by awarding the attorney fees to Chapman, because United’s claim was brought on reasonable ground. The award of postjudgment interest awarded to Chapman was also reversed.
