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.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal on Dec. 21 published an article titled “Clark County Discrimination Case Was A Strong One” about a case in which Clark County was sued in a federal wage discrimination lawsuit.

The suit, filed by the county’s diversity director and recently settled in favor of the director, was first sent to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2007 and, in an unusual move, picked up by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

“It is not usual for the Department of Justice to get involved in cases such as this because there’s limited resources, so I think it must have been rather clear that there was liability,” Professor Garcia said.

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.
