Legal Alert - Nevada Supreme Court Holds That Failure to Comply With Contract’s Mediation Provision Bars a Suit on the Contract
by Bob L. Olson and Nathan G. Kanute
In MB America, Inc., v. Alaska Pacific Leasing Company, 132 Nev. Adv. Op. 8 (February 4, 2016), the Nevada Supreme Court was presented with an appeal from an order granting a summary judgment in the defendant’s favor because the plaintiff had not first submitted the parties’ dispute to mediation as required by their contract. The Supreme Court affirmed the lower court’s decision and its award of attorney’s fees to the defendant.
