Alex Hagan and Andrew Chamberlin, partners at Ellis & Winters LLP, obtained a pleadings-stage dismissal of an eight-figure commercial claim in Nevada federal court on behalf of a Canadian manufacturer and a French manufacturer. The plaintiff sought to recover replacement costs for over 1,000 electrical products that it claimed were defective. The court concluded that the economic-loss rule barred those claims. The decision is Nev. Power Co. v. Trench France, S.A.S., No.: 2:19-cv-01252-JAD-VCF, 2020 WL 6689340 (D. Nev. Nov. 12, 2020).
