North Las Vegas Pay Raise Lawsuit

A judge ruled that the City of North Las Vegas was wrong when it suspended promised pay raises in 2012, claiming a "fiscal emergency." The ruling makes the city responsible for $25 million in raises that officials agreed to before the recession struck. Mayor John Lee has said the ruling could bankrupt the city. So why did the unions bring this case to court? And what does the ruling mean for them?
