(Las Vegas, NV) — The Clark County School District is facing a lawsuit from the company that negotiated an existing health insurance plan.

In the lawsuit, Business Benefits alleges its contract was wrongfully terminated and they haven’t been paid for work they did.

The court action also claims School Board President Erin Cranor, acting without the board’s consent, may have interfered in the process by urging Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky to end the district’s contract with the company, “as soon as possible.”

Business Benefits contends the Clark County School District cancelled without giving proper notice.

The plan it negotiated doesn’t expire until the end of 2016.

The suit also alleges former Superintendent Dwight Jones wrongfully depleated $30 million in health insurance reserve money to fund employee benefits and salaries.

A school district spokesperson says it doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
