(AP) — Nevada's pushing back against San Francisco's city attorney after he demanded a half-million dollar reimbursement for treatment of psychiatric patients allegedly bused to the city.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17SCyoy ) the letter issued Monday by the Nevada Attorney General's Office says San Francisco hasn't provided sufficient evidence to support its claims. It also contends the city hasn't explained the legal theory behind its proposed lawsuit.
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera threatened to sue Nevada after an investigation he says identified 500 discharged patients transported to California.
He says 24 of them ended up in San Francisco, and 20 needed emergency treatment upon their arrival.
Herrera gave Nevada until Monday to negotiate a settlement.
Herrera did not immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday morning.
