Jason Williams Obtains Summary Judgment For Large National Developer

Jason Williams of the Las Vegas office was successful in his arguments on May 12, 2010 that his client, a large nationwide homebuilder, was not liable for Plaintiffs' alleged injuries as a result of a car accident. 

The suit was brought by the driver and passenger of a van that was rear-ended by an employee of a subsidiary of the developer.  Plaintiffs claimed substantial soft tissue and other damages as a result of the accident.  In the case, Plaintiffs failed to name and serve the subsidiary despite being provided with the information from the on-set.  The Judge in Department 10 of the Clark County District Court found that Plaintiffs failed to exercise proper diligence and failed to uncover any material facts that the developer was liable for their injuries.

Based on the briefs and arguments presented by Mr. Williams, the Court entered judgment in the developer's favor and refused to permit Plaintiffs leave to amend their Complaint to name the subsidiary.  The action is now time-barred by the statute of limitations
