Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Despite a recent ruling, the conflict between constables in the state of Nevada is not settled.
The latest decision by a district court judge sides with the Las Vegas Township Constable's Office.
The bottom line: constables should stay in their own jurisdictions.
The Las Vegas Township Constable's Office says the law has always been clear and law enforcement officers should know better than to break the law.
Las Vegas Township Constable John Bonaventura claimed that constables from Laughlin and Henderson have been unlawfully taking business away from the Las Vegas office.
Those constables disagree with the decision and say they will file an appeal with the state supreme court.
According to Nevada law, constables are allowed to serve subpoenas, handle evictions and summon juries for justices of the peace.
