Here are your Saturday morning headlines:

1. The Las Vegas officer faces charges in the death of Tashii Brown has filed a lawsuit against the police department.

The multimillion-dollar renovation was completed in 106 hours, and nearly doubled the size of the casino. It also added a 24-foot, 360-degree “television fountain” with a multifaceted spiral crystal chandelier at a new casino entrance off Fremont.
