Senior Shareholder Mike Stoberski and Associate Attorney Brandon Smith obtained summary judgment for a client based on a worker’s compensation immunity defense. The client hired a subcontractor as additional labor for rigging a zip line. The plaintiff received workers compensation as an employee of the subcontractor, but sued the client for his injuries. Ultimately, the Court found that the client was a statutory employer under the Meers test and was therefore immune from suit under Nevada’s Industrial Insurance Act.
Shareholder Felicia Galati obtained a dismissal in a §1983, §1985, and §1986 case on behalf of Clark County, Nevada. Plaintiff sought federal review of state court orders in custody and child dependency proceedings. The Court granted the Motion to Dismiss the entire action because it lacked subject matter jurisdiction under Rooker-Feldman. The Court further found that even if it were to find it had jurisdiction, Plaintiff failed to allege any specific or adequate facts to support his claims.
