A Note From the Issue Editor
By Beau Sterling, Esq.
This month, Nevada Lawyer features a number of articles focusing on recent changes relative to Nevada courts. First, Phil Dabney and Magali Wysong offer a detailed look at a recent change from the Nevada Legislature, removing the requirement that public works disputes be resolved by mandatory and binding arbitration, certainly of interest to construction law practitioners. Next, Ethan Birnberg provides a detailed look at claim and issue preclusion, offering some clarity to this sometimes-confusing topic. In addition, in my capacity as Lawyer Representative to the federal court, I’ve provided a brief summary of recent changes to the local rules in the both the District of Nevada and the Court of Appeals for Ninth Circuit; I invite you to read my column on page 16. In addition, the legal community is offering numerous networking and CLE opportunities this month. Your April issue offers an expanded look at the upcoming Judicial Symposium on Alcohol and Drug abuse. We’ve also got an expanded CLE Calendar on pages 38-39, and bar president Kathleen England provides an excellent overview of additional events on this page. We hope you’ll be able to attend some of these educational offerings.
