Nevada Supreme Court clarifies that separate action exists to landlord for money damages

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.
