Lead counsel in landmark case decided by the Nevada Supreme Court that prevented the Nevada Legislature and Governor from enforcing an unconstitutional tax enacted to sweep $62 million from the funds of a local governmental agency to the state's general fund. The precedent established by this case prevented over $650 million in sweeps from local governmental entities and municipalities across Nevada during the 2010 legislative session, and defined the state constitution's limits applicable to taxes, special laws and local laws.
