Professor Ruben Garcia Quoted in Las Vegas Review-Journal

Ruben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Jan. 22, he was quoted in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article Ruling forces North Las Vegas to weigh its options.

“The (District Court) opinion is a pretty straightforward statutory opinion. I think it’s going to be tough to convince the Supreme Court to take a different approach, but there’s certainly a chance they would interpret (the statute) differently. The question is does the city want to get a fresh start out of this? Does the new leadership want to take a new approach?” Professor Garcia said in the article about how the City of North Las Vegas will cover $25 million due in back pay to the city’s public safety unions.

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
