Hurst filed the legal challenge on October 2nd, 2012 and asked to have the matter heard on shortened time. The Hearing was set for October 11th. However Martin challenged Judge Nancy Allf, who voluntarily recused, thereby delaying the hearing until Friday, November 2nd. Judge Bare conducted a Hearing but allowed Martin to have an Evidentiary Hearing at his request, which was set for the next judicial day, Monday November 5th. I have no dog in this fight; I simply went to the Court's website to read the case history.

It appears the assertion that Hurst unduly delayed the process until the day before Election Day is factually wrong.

Contrary to the story, the statement that "[a] team of lawyers for the Las Vegas Sands, which included Jones, was sanctioned by a Clark County District Court judge for not disclosing the availability of evidence" is inaccurate.

The team of lawyers was not sanctioned. Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez sanctioned the Sands, not the attorneys.

The article erroneously states that the Nevada Supreme Court upheld the sentence in June. The Nevada Supreme Court has not ruled on Schubert's appeal from the sentence and has instead designated the appeal to be a FastTrack appeal from the Judgment of Conviction which was entered August 15th.

In June, the Nevada Supreme Court denied a writ of mandamus seeking intervention of the Court prior to the sentence. However this denial does not constitute upholding the sentence.

VegasLee is mostly right. Most people would rather not pay their attorneys $300 per hour to stand in a line. Government attorneys (AGs/DAs/PDs) all have badges and just badge in as government employees. They are not required to go through a metal detector.

Where Sisolak is wrong is that private attorneys DO get to go to the front of the line (or have a separate line) but do go through metal detectors and are wanded for weapons.

They tried this with attorneys before in the form of $50 fee paid through the Clark County Bar Association. It failed. Now they believe that attorneys will pay three times more and it will be a rousing success?
