The Supreme Court of Nevada reversed the lower court's grant of co-defendant's motion for summary judgment against our client for indemnity arising out of a third-party's injury at an excavation site. The Court noted that co-defendant had assumed our client's duty to safeguard the site and had not returned control of that portion of the project to our client at the time of the accident.
