LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court says a lower court was right to dismiss a case challenging state employees who also serve in the Legislature.

The high court issued a decision this week in an appeal filed by the conservative think tank Nevada Policy Research Institute.

NPRI had challenged the constitutionality of Democratic state Sen. Mo Denis of Las Vegas serving in the Legislature because he also worked as a computer technician for the state Public Utilities Commission.

Denis then resigned, and a state judge in Carson City declared the case moot.

NPRI argued that the case should be heard in spite of Denis’ resignation because it was in the public’s interest, but the supreme court denied the request and said the plaintiff lacked proper standing.
