VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada judge has dismissed most of the claims in a civil lawsuit an ex-business partner filed against a Storey County commissioner and developer who owns the Mustang Ranch brothel.

District Court Judge James Wilson threw out five of seven claims in the $1.5 million lawsuit accusing Lance Gilman of conspiring with county officials to cut a Florida businessman out of his share of the profits at the legal house of prostitution just east of Reno.

The judge ruled Thursday Tom Gonzales of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., can proceed with two claims alleging breach of contract on the part of Gilman's company, Cash Assets Management LLC.

But Gilman's lawyer Mark Gunderson tells the Reno Gazette-Journal (http://tinyurl.com/o5pv5nn) it's a significant victory because Gilman is no longer personally liable for any damages.
