Nevada Judge to Decide if Sands Wrongful Termination Case Should Proceed

LAS VEGAS (Associated Press) — A Nevada judge will decide if a wrongful termination case against Las Vegas Sands Corp. can proceed nearly five years after it was first filed.

District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez heard closing arguments Thursday morning from lawyers representing former Sands China Ltd. CEO Steven Jacobs and casino-hotel company Las Vegas Sands.

At issue first is whether the case can be tried in Nevada since Sands China's operations are based in the lucrative Asian gambling enclave of Macau.

The state's Supreme Court says legal jurisdiction must first be established.

Jacobs' attorneys argue Sands China business including hiring and firing Jacobs was conducted from Nevada by principals with Las Vegas Sands including that company's chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson. Defense attorneys say Sands China is separate and distinct and calls Macau home.
