|14-1175||Nev.||Dec 7, 2015||Apr 19, 2016||6-2||Breyer||OT 2015|
Holding: (1) The Court is equally divided on the question whether Nevada v. Hall should be overruled and thus affirms the Nevada courts' exercise of jurisdiction over California's state agency; and (2) the Constitution does not permit Nevada to apply a rule of Nevada law that awards damages against California that are greater than it could award Nevada in similar circumstances.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded, 6-2, in an opinion by Justice Breyer on April 19, 2016. Justice Alito concurred in the judgment. Chief Justice Roberts filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Thomas joined.
