Attorney General Laxalt Applauds Judge’s Order to Dismiss Education Savings Account Challenge

May 18, 2016

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement after an order granting the state of Nevada’s motion to dismiss the ESA challenge brought by the American Civil Liberties Union:  

“This is a huge and important step in getting certainty for the thousands of families waiting to participate in Nevada’s ESA program,” said Laxalt. “The Court correctly dismissed these speculative and tenuous claims. The decision today clears the way for the Nevada Supreme Court to meaningfully address the remaining uncertainty caused by the injunction in the other case challenging Nevada’s ESA program. We are one giant step closer to helping thousands of Nevada families choose the best educational option for their children.”
