The Nevada Supreme Court ruled that Las Vegas Sands Corp., owners of the Venetian and Palazzo resorts in Las Vegas, doesn’t have to provide confidential documents to an executive who is suing the corporation for wrongful termination.
According to reports, Steven Jacobs, former Sands China chief, is suing the company for wrongful dismal and breach of contract in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas.Jacob’s lawyers requested emails that were in a computer hard drive, but Sands refused to provide the documents.
District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez sanctioned the corporation in 2012 for failing to provide Jacob’s attorneys with the requested documents, but the Nevada Supreme Court sided with Sands, arguing that Jacob’s attorneys waited too long to request the documents.
The legal battle sparked interest from U.S. Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission investigators who believe it could possibly be a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Law.
If you believe you are wrongfully terminated due to discrimination or other reasons, you should talk to an attorney right away. There are time limits on when you can file suit, so it is important that your attorney starts the investigation immediately.
