Case Open: Counts of fraud, theft, breach of contract move forward against CCEA

Judge ruling on narrow issue does not impact more serious CCEA counts
Published: November 16, 2018

(Las Vegas, NV) - Thursday, November 15, 2018 a District Court Judge considered a preliminary motion in the lawsuit between the Nevada State Education Association (NSEA) and the Clark County Education Association (CCEA). Since the NSEA update on the proceedings, published immediately following the hearing, an additional ruling has been published by the Court. As seen in the screenshot below, this case remains “OPEN.”

The Court ruled on the narrow issue of the dues transmittal and service agreement between NSEA and CCEA. While NSEA is not pleased with the Judge’s decision it will continue to pursue legal options. Again, Thursday’s ruling did not end the lawsuit between NSEA, NEA, its members against CCEA. In fact, the Judge ruled in NSEA’s favor to dismiss three counterclaims by CCEA against NSEA and cleared the path for the count of fraud to move forward against CCEA. As indicated in public records, the lawsuit against CCEA is open and will proceed to trial. NSEA expects a favorable decision for NSEA, NEA, and its members.

In January 2018, the Court cleared the way for a lawsuit against CCEA to move forward. Thursday’s decision does not interfere with NSEA and NEA’s pursuit of justice for thousands of Clark County teachers and education professionals. CCEA has been illegally withholding dues from NSEA and NEA since September 2017. The lawsuit’s counts against CCEA include theft, unjust enrichment, fraud and breach of contract.
