May 11, 2013

I have not committed any illegal act and my performance reviews have been positive. Can my former bosses ruin my chances of getting hired by personally criticizing me to other companies?

John Mowbray Recognized for Contributions to Las Vegas' Legal History
January 07, 2011
Description:

John Mowbray, managing partner of Fennemore Craig’s Las Vegas office, recently was an honored guest at an event highlighting the city’slegal history and the Mob Museum- which is under construction- and to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Kefauver hearings. Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman recognized John and his contributions at the event.

The Kefauver Hearings, 14 in all, were held by a United States Senate committee throughout the country in an effort to expose organized crime. The seventh hearing was held in the Las Vegas Post Office and Federal Court building on Nov. 15, 1950. The building now is being renovated for The Mob Museum, which will explain the mafia’s history in Las Vegas and display mafia-related historically significant memorabilia and artifacts.  

John, a Las Vegas native and lawyer for nearly 40 years, is on the board of The Mob Museum and has helped with its development. The Mowbray family’s involvement in the community and its legal history goes back decades and includes John’s father, the Hon. John. C. Mowbray, who served as a Nevada Supreme Court justice for more than a quarter of a century.

John has been involved in significant legal cases, including litigation resulting from the MGM Grand fire in 1980, which led to changes in fire codes requiring the use of sprinklers in commercial buildings. He served as chairman of the Let Freedom Ring Executive Committee, which spearheaded a project to put a full-scale replica of the Liberty Bell in the plaza at Fourth Street and Lewis Avenue, anchoring Las Vegas’ legal history corridor.

Supreme Court of Arizona rejects Gift Clause Challenge to
January 25, 2010
Description:

Link to Phoenix Business Journal Article

Link to Official Arizona Supreme Court Decision

In an opinion filed on January 25, 2010, the Arizona Supreme Court reversed and vacated the opinion of the Arizona Court of Appeals in Turken et al. v. Gordon et al., which had invalidated a retail sales tax incentive agreement between the City of Phoenix and NPP CityNorth, L.L.C., the developers of the massive North Phoenix mixed-use project known as "CityNorth."

In Turken, a group of City of Phoenix taxpayers filed suit against the City seeking to invalidate an agreement between the City and a developer under which the City agreed to rebate a certain portion of all new retail tax revenue generated by the project for a limited time, in exchange for the developer's agreement to build the project in the time, place, and manner desired by the City. The trial court rejected the taxpayers' claims, but the Court of Appeals reversed, holding that by providing an economic incentive to build the project, the agreement violated the Gift Clause, which prohibits government entities from making gifts or "subsidies" to private parties."

The Supreme Court granted the City's Petition for Review, and subsequently reversed and vacated the Court of Appeals' decision. In so doing, the Court clarified the requirements that must be satisfied for an agreement to pass muster under the Gift Clause, and specifically upheld the City's agreement, holding that even if the agreement violated the Gift Clause, any change in law occasioned by its opinion should be applied prospectively only. Although the Supreme Court remanded the case for consideration of various arguments not reached by the Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court's opinion represents a significant victory for municipalities throughout Arizona by preserving their ability to enter into retail sales tax incentive agreements, rejecting the inherently subjective analytical framework adopted by the Court of Appeals, and clarifying the requirements such agreements must satisfy under the Gift Clause.

Timothy Berg, Andrew Federhar, Theresa Dwyer-Federhar, and Scott Shelley represented the City of Phoenix in Turken v. Gordon, Supreme Court case No. CV-09-0042-PR.
