WHAT REALLY MAKES US VEGAS STRONG?
By Leon Symanski, Esq.
In my humble opinion, Las Vegas is one of the most unique and wonderful places in the world. Whether you are one of the 42.3 million people who visit this fine city annually or you live here, I am willing to bet that you would agree. There are approximately 603,000 Las Vegas residents and approximately 2.2 million people who live in Clark County.
I moved to Las Vegas almost 35 years ago, the summer of 1984, as a UNLV student-athlete. I have seen a tremendous amount of growth and changes over the years. 60,000 people move to Las Vegas annually. I have been very fortunate to meet some amazing people, the life-blood that make this city come alive and thrive 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Before I went to law school I worked in the hotel/casino industry for 10 years, six of those years at the Tropicana Hotel and then I was part of the team that opened the Luxor Hotel in 1993. I interacted with all people from all parts of the world who were both visiting Las Vegas and working by my side. I have seen spectacular buildings being built and spectacular buildings being imploded. Las Vegas is made up of strong, hard-working, dedicated people who really make this city Vegas Strong.
Our community found out just how strong we are in October 2017. We came together and united as one, and we will continue to grow together.

Products Liability Corner
Zofran – Zofran is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (“GSK”) and was approved by the FDA for preventing nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy and surgery. Although Zofran is not approved for any other indication, it is often prescribed “off-label” by physicians to treat morning sickness in pregnant women. Studies published in 2013 and 2014 found that Zofran is associated with an increased risk of heart defects and oral clefts in newborns if taken by women during the first trimester. In 2012 the U.S. Department of Justice reached a $3 billion settlement with GSK after the government alleged it illegally promoted the off-label uses of several drugs, including promoting Zofran for use by pregnant women to treat morning sickness.
