LAS VEGAS (AP) - A health plan consultant is suing the Clark County School District, saying administrators missed a deadline and wrongfully canceled its contract Dec. 31.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Business Benefits Inc. accuses School Board President Erin Cranor of improperly directing Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky to fire the company well after a June 30, 2013, cancellation deadline.

The breach-of-contract lawsuit filed May 29 in Clark County District Court seeks unspecified monetary damages.

It says the district wanted to remodel the contract in response to a multi-million dollar deficit, but says the contract couldn't be terminated for "convenience."

The Las Vegas-based district has a health plan for 11,000 school support staff and about 150 police officers.

It also pays labor unions to provide insurance for 1,300 school administrators and 18,000 teachers.
