Fisher Sand and Gravel—represented by Ballard Spahr attorneys Stanley W. Parry, Burt M. Rublin, and Jon Theodore Pearson—will receive $5 million to settle a legal battle with a rival contractor over a road-widening project on the northern Las Vegas Beltway. Clark County Commissioners agreed to settle with Fisher, which had accused them of having a pro-union bias after they awarded the contract to Las Vegas Paving, a union shop, even though Fisher bid lower. Las Vegas Paving will cover most of the settlement costs. The balance will come from the county, using interest that accrued on $140 million set aside for the project.
