v.
Gilbert P. Hyatt
Consideration Limited:

QUESTIONS 2 AND 3 PRESENTED BY THE PETITION.

Question Presented:

1. Whether the federal discretionary-function immunity rule, 28 U.S.C. $2680(a), is categorically inapplicable to intentional torts and bad-faith conduct. 2. Whether Nevada may refuse to extend to sister States haled into Nevada courts the same immunities Nevada enjoys in those courts. 3. Whether Nevada v. Hall, 440 U.S. 410 (1979), which permits a sovereign State to be haled into the courts of another State without its consent, should be overruled.
