LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada Supreme Court says a Clark County judge erred by not holding a hearing on whether Nevada State Bank improperly garnished nearly $12,000 in saving accounts co-owned by three Las Vegas children to settle their parent's $4.1 million loan default.

A three-judge panel last week ordered the case back to the district court to determine whether garnishment of the joint accounts held by Haley, Tyson and Trey Brooksby and their mother was proper.

A lawyer for the family says the accounts are what the children saved from summer jobs and received as gifts.

The three were teenagers when the bank garnished the accounts in 2009.

A year later Clark County District Judge Jessie Walsh ruled the bank's action was proper without holding a hearing.
