VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Storey County jury has awarded a $1.3 million claim against a firm that belongs to Mustang Ranch owner and Storey Commissioner Lance Gilman in a contract dispute with an ex-business partner who says he was cheated out of his share of brothel profits.
The jury awarded the judgment in district court in Virginia City on Friday to Tom Gonzales of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., for breach of contract and breach of good faith and fair dealing.
A judge on Thursday had dismissed five other counts that personally named Gilman as one of the co-defendants in Gonzales' civil lawsuit.
The judgment is against Gilman's Cash Assets Management LLC, the company that controlled the Wild Horse brothel.
