Issue: (1) Whether the decision of the Supreme Court of Nevada holding that the Nevada Attorney General’s action for damages under the Nevada state antitrust law is preempted as a matter of law by federal regulation of natural gas markets is in conflict with decisions of the Seventh and Ninth Circuits in Illinois ex rel Burris v. Panhandle Eastern Pipeline Co. and E. & J. Gallo Winery v. EnCana Corp.; and (2) whether it was error for the Nevada Supreme Court to base its “field preemption” conclusion on this Court’s decision in Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corp. v. State Oil & Gas Bd. Of Mississippi without regard to subsequent limitations of that decision in Puerto Rico Dept. of Consumer Affairs v. Isla Petroleum Corp. and subsequent changes in the relevant statutory and regulatory framework enacted by Congress and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
