Report gives 'lemon' car buyer the right to sue in Nevada

Like almost every other state, Nevada has a statute that gives a car buyer the right to sue the dealer or person who sold him or her the car if it turns out to have major, unfixable defects or is otherwise unusable. Such statutes are commonly known as "lemon laws." Nevada's lemon law clearly applies to new vehicles, and appears to cover used vehicles also, though a complication may arise there.

Las Vegas Sands says lookalike website is counterfeit

Perhaps it is another sign that you cannot trust everything you see on the Internet: the casino-hotelier Las Vegas Sands Corp. has filed a lawsuit against a website it says copied its own site to commit fraud by luring visitors into buying into an investment opportunity. Sands claims the website looks very similar to the genuine company site, with pictures of the Venetian and Palazzo casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. Unfortunately for Sands, the creators of the website are not known.
