Judicial conflicts of interest in Nev.

Michael J. Goodman and William C. Rempel of the Los Angeles Times analyzed court and campaign records and found that in Las Vegas, "some judges routinely rule in cases involving friends, former clients and business associates — and in favor of lawyers who fill their campaign coffers."
