Sands China Ltd. has cheated its former president and CEO out of his day in court “long enough,” the man’s attorney argued Thursday.
Attorney Todd Bice urged Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez to find that she has jurisdiction over the company in a wrongful termination case filed by the former executive, Steven Jacobs.
“It’s hard to believe that we are talking about jurisdiction in a case that is approaching the five-year mark, but we are,” Bice said.
The case was filed by Jacobs, former president and CEO of Sands China, shortly after he was fired in 2010. It has made several trips to the Nevada Supreme Court over the years, and Gonzalez has said she also expects an appeal of her decision on the jurisdiction issue.
