A Clark County district court judge denied a motion to dismiss a case against four residents who were successful in getting an initiative on the November ballot to limit the city to one golf course, and also determined they were not owed any attorneys’ fees.
Judge Allan Earl ruled on Oct. 21 that the defendants’ constitutional right to petition had not been violated by the city’s lawsuit and, therefore, denied both aspects of the motion.
Attorneys for the defendants, Tracy Strickland and his wife, City Councilwoman Linda Strickland, however, are planning to continue legal action.
The golf course initiative is one of three ballot questions the city had considered fighting in court.
