Case Synopsis

Appeal from a district court order granting respondents’ motion to transfer venue from Nye County to Clark County. The Court reversed the district court order, concluding that the district court abused its discretion because it (1) lacked sufficient evidence in the record to support transfer under the doctrine of forum non conveniens; (2) failed to properly analyze the issues under NRS 3.100(2) and past precedent requiring Nevada counties to provide adequate courtroom facilities; and (3) failed to consider the docket congestion in Clark County before reaching its decision.
