Defendants raised twenty questions in their Motion to Dismiss, which the Court described as a "scorched earth approach" that was both "multi-layered" and "dismissive" in that it required the Court to independently research various nuances of Nevada law. Defendants' Reply also incorporated rulings and raised new issues from a recent order in parallel action pending in…
