Court date set in Henderson city attorney DUI case

DUI DWI Laws

A court date is set for a Nevada city attorney facing drunken driving, leaving the scene of an accident and open container of alcohol charges following a daytime crash last month.

Henderson City Attorney Elizabeth Quillin is due for arraignment Monday in Henderson Municipal Court before a visiting judge, Moapa Valley Justice of the Peace D. Lanny Waite.

Henderson Municipal Court administrator David Hayward tells the Las Vegas Sun the Clark County district attorney's office will handle the prosecution.

The 51-year-old Quillin is on paid leave pending the outcome of the case and a city administrative investigation of the May 23 crash.

Police say she acknowledged she'd had "bottles" of wine and was intoxicated after crashing her vehicle into landscaping, a fire hydrant, a tree and other vehicles.

Grounds for Divorce in Ohio - Sylkatis Law, LLC

A divorce in Ohio is filed when there is typically “fault” by one of the parties and party not at “fault” seeks to end the marriage. A court in Ohio may grant a divorce for the following reasons:
• Willful absence of the adverse party for one year
• Adultery
• Extreme cruelty
• Fraudulent contract
• Any gross neglect of duty
• Habitual drunkenness
• Imprisonment in a correctional institution at the time of filing the complaint
• Procurement of a divorce outside this state by the other party

Additionally, there are two “no-fault” basis for which a court may grant a divorce:
• When the parties have, without interruption for one year, lived separate and apart without cohabitation
• Incompatibility, unless denied by either party

However, whether or not the the court grants the divorce for “fault” or not, in Ohio the party not at “fault” will not get a bigger slice of the marital property.
