Senate Bill 286 protects political speech from civil legal actions

The 2013 Nevada Legislature passed Senate Bill 286 that provides  the protection to a person engaged in good faith communications in furtherance of the right to free speech.  Speech concerning issues of public concern is immense from a civil lawsuit.  The statute, which amends NRS Chapter 176, provides a speedy procedure for dismissing any such action and provides for the  recovery of costs and attorney fees as well as civil monetary penalties.  If the District Court refuses to dismiss the action then a right of appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court exists.
