Case Synopsis

The Court affirmed the district court's order dismissing the complaint for forum non conveniens. The Court found the lower court properly gave less deference to the respondent’s choice of a Nevada forum and did not abuse its discretion by dismissing the case because the case lacked any bona fide connection to this state, adequate alternative fora existed, and the burdens of litigating in Nevada outweighed any convenience to the respondent. Furthermore, the Court held the district court imposed appropriate conditions on dismissal to ensure the existence of an adequate alternative forum for this litigation.
