A federal judge in Nevada has ruled that a disputed Las Vegas highway project should be awarded to a North Dakota company, despite a county commission vote to start the bidding process over again.

U.S. District Court Judge Clive Jones issued a ruling granting Fisher Sand and Gravel the $112 million contract to widen a section of the Las Vegas Beltway north of the city in early January, according to an Associated Press report in the Marin Independent Journal [1].

According to the report, Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin says commissioners will decide within 30 days whether to appeal.

Fisher Sand and Gravel, based in Dickson, N.D., filed a lawsuit last April in state court, challenging commission votes awarding a $117 million contract for the job to Nevada-based Las Vegas Paving, according to the report.
