Wagner sues North Las Vegas, tries to block new election

Wade Wagner, who defeated incumbent Richard Cherchio by one vote only to see his victory cast into doubt, has sued the North Las Vegas City Council for calling for a new election in a precinct where one voter cast a contested ballot.

The action, filed by attorney Todd Bice, alleges the council had no right other than to canvass and certify the one-vote victory by Wagner and no right to call for a new election, as it did last week.

The complaint is at right.
