LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court is fast-tracking an appeal of the case involving two redevelopment measures the Culinary Workers Union wants on the June 2 ballot in Las Vegas.
The state high court issued an order Wednesday setting an accelerated appeal schedule that could lead to a decision within two weeks.
That would be two weeks before the election, but after early voting begins.
The union collected enough signatures to put two measures on the ballot. One would repeal the Las Vegas city redevelopment plan. The other would require voter approval for major projects like a proposed new city hall.
A Clark County District Court judge upheld a Las Vegas City Council decision to reject the measures as defective. The union has appealed.
