It took $750 for lawyer Christopher Stephens to settle a case with the city of Henderson, which named Stephens as one of the defendants in the city’s arena land case lawsuit against developer Chris Milam.
Stephens was among five defendants listed in the city’s lawsuit in late January that alleged Milam and four consultants on the project conspired to mislead the city into thinking that they were working on a sports complex when they were planning to buy the 480-acre federal site and flip the land for homes and business use.
Stephens is an attorney with the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck.
The other three defendants in the case are land consultant Mike Ford, lawyer John Marchiano and public relations specialist Lee Haney.
The city is asking for an injunction from a District Court judge to prohibit Milam from using the 480 acres for anything except a stadium or arena.
