Las Vegas Sands Corp. v. Eighth Judicial Dist. Ct., 331 P.3d 876 (Nev. 2014)

Key Insight: Nevada Supreme Court declined to intervene in discovery dispute scheduled for hearing by district court, concluding that the mere presence of a foreign international privacy statute did not itself preclude Nevada district courts from ordering litigants to comply with Nevada discovery rules — rather, the existence of such a statute would become relevant to the district court?s sanctions analysis in the event the discovery order was disobeyed; since district court had indicated it would balance defendant’s desire to comply with the privacy statute with other factors at the yet-to-be-held sanctions hearing, defendant failed to demonstrate that district court had exceeded its jurisdiction or exercised its discretion arbitrarily or capriciously and extraordinary relief was not warranted
