Nevada Court says Sands can Keep Documents Secret

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Nevada Supreme Court has sided with casino giant Las Vegas Sands on the question of whether the company has to hand over confidential documents to an executive suing for wrongful termination.

That executive, former Sands China chief Steven Jacobs, has said he needs to documents to make his case.

On Thursday, the court unanimously granted Sands' request to overturn a lower court on the matter. The justices said Jacobs' team had waited too long to make their request.

Jacobs was fired in July 2010, and filed a lawsuit for wrongful dismissal three months later in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas. He accuses the company of breach of contract and pushing him into illegal activity in Macau.

Las Vegas Sands filed a counterclaim, accusing Jacobs of extortion.
