The Las Vegas Review-Journal has filed court papers requesting documents connected to a criminal investigation of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority be unsealed.
Las Vegas Metro Police searched agency offices in March for evidence of the mishandling of $90,000 in airline gift cards and arrested executive Brig Lawson.
Lawson is no longer in custody pending official charges.
CEO Rossi Ralenkotter retired in August after it came to light that he used $17,000 in gift cards for personal trips.
Ralenkotter issued an apology and reimbursed the LVCVA, but he denied committing a crime.
The agency still pays Ralenkotter $15,000 per month in consultancy fees.
The Review-Journal's lawyer said it is in the public interest to find out about the investigation into how the LVCVA was using public funds.
