Case Synopsis

The Court held that a defendant may raise a defense of claim preclusion against a plaintiff’s complaint even when that defendant was not a party or privy with a defendant in an earlier action brought by the plaintiff. The Court modified the privity requirement established in Five Star Capital Corp. v. Ruby, 124 Nev. 1048, 194 P.3d 709 (2008) to incorporate nonmutual claim preclusion.
