District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez will continue hearing Steven Jacobs’ case against Las Vegas Sands, as the casino firm failed to provide “new grounds to remove” Gonzalez from the case, local media reports.
Chief Clark County District Judge David Barker made the ruling last week after investigating claims the Gonzalez was bias in Jacobs’ lawsuit. “This court thoroughly evaluated defendant’s arguments and exhibits and found no evidence Judge Gonzalez has actual bias or implied bias in favor of or against any party to this action,” Barker wrote, according to the report.
Jacobs had filed a lawsuit after he was wrongfully terminated by Las Vegas Sands in 2010 as head of operations of the Macau-based casino.
