In G.C. Wallace v. The Eighth Judicial Court of the State of Nevada 127 Nev. Adv. Op. 64 (2011), the Nevada Supreme Court addressed the question of whether a claim by a landlord for money damages must also be brought at the same time of a summary eviction action. The Court addressed the doctrine of claims preclusion and NRS 40.253. The Court acknowledged the ambiguity of the statute, but held that claims preclusion does not bar a landlord from bringing a separate action after summary eviction.
