Summary Judgment Granted

 

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.
