Nevada High Court: Out-of-State Plaintiffs Are Considered 'Foreign' for Forum Selection Purposes
“Accordingly, we hold that a sister-state-resident plaintiff should be treated as ‘foreign’ for the purposes of a forum non conveniens analysis and thus be afforded less deference in her choice of forum, unless she proves that Nevada is a convenient forum by showing bona fide connections to Nevada,” the court said. “However, we do not resolve whether this case has bona fide connections to Nevada, given that we conclude C.R. England and Alamin did not meet their evidentiary burden.”
