MGM/Boyd group to high court: Don’t give Caesars another bite of the arena apple

UPDATE: SOS also files brief and asks for clarification if it needs to print ballots with initiative on there -- also posted at right.

So says a filing just made at the Nevada Supreme Court by Taxpayers for the Protection of Nevada Jobs (have we Nevadans ever properly thanked them?) that asserts the Caesars arena petition remains deceptive and flawed.

The high court had handed down that bizarre decision that agreed with the MGM/Boyd front group arguments but said the petition could still be on the ballot once the description of effect was fixed (even though that description does not go on the ballot). Now that the secretary of state essentially has asked the high court to clarify its decision, the court is considering a rehearing.

Don't do it, the MGM/Boyd folks argue in the brief at right that essentially argues the initial high court ruling found the description misleading, which should nullify the petition and obviate a rehearing.
