NV: Former Prosecutor Files Federal Lawsuit Against County DA’s Office

A former prosecutor who had a romantic relationship with embattled Family Court Judge Steven Jones is suing the Clark County district attorney’s office in an effort to clear her name.

In a federal lawsuit filed Friday by lawyer Gary Modafferi, Lisa Willardson denied she and Jones had a relationship while she appeared before the judge, though emails between the couple suggested they were dating at the time.

The 11-page lawsuit says the district attorney’s office spread “false statements” to Las Vegas news media about the relationship between Willardson and Jones, which slandered and defamed her and violated her civil rights.

According to the lawsuit, Willardson also was denied the opportunity for a “name clearing hearing” by the district attorney’s office.

Willardson is asking for an unspecified amount of damages, including back pay with interest.
