LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge is due to hear ownership arguments about 27 puppies rescued from a Las Vegas pet shop fire in January.

Clark County District Court Judge Kenneth Cory is due Wednesday to hear from attorneys for a Prince and Princess pet shop managing owner and for the nonprofit that runs the shelter where the dogs have been kept since the Jan. 27 fire.

Store partner Donald Thompson filed a civil lawsuit against the county and The Animal Foundation after county officials said the shelter could raffle the puppies to the public.

Thompson wants the animals to go to another rescue group.

Thompson is the estranged husband of shop owner Gloria Lee.

Lee and co-defendant Kirk Bills are accused of trying to set the business afire for the insurance money.
