NEVADA – Nevada justice warned HOA conspirators of police raids, witness says
Though several attorneys and former police officers were charged in the high-profile investigation, no judges or Supreme Court justices have been charged.
In a statement released late Monday, Chief Justice James Hardesty said: “The Nevada Supreme Court, as an institution, has nothing to offer in response to your inquiry about the testimony of Deborah Genato. This is an inquiry that should be directed to each individual justice, not the court.
“Speaking for myself, I have never spoken to Nancy Quon about this or any other investigation, whether civil or criminal.”
Quon, considered one of the central figures in the scheme, committed suicide in March 2012 under the weight of the long-running federal investigation. She was not charged at the time.
The subject of leaks has been a sensitive issue in the case.
In March 2011, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the Justice Department had opened a criminal investigation to determine whether prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office in Las Vegas had leaked information that allowed Quon to alter or destroy evidence.Read more:
