Beers suing Democratic opponent for libel

State Sen. Bob Beers, R-Las Vegas, is suing his Democratic opponent, Allison Copening, and the Nevada Democratic Party for libel over a campaign flier sent out alleging that Beers was "Under Ethics Commission Review." The complaint was filed in Clark County District Court Thursday.

Beers was never under investigation by the Nevada Ethics Commission "for any actions during any relevant period of time in question," the complaint says.
