Attorney General Ford Joins Coalition Opposing Texas AG’s Baseless Effort to Invalidate 2020 Election Results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin
Attorneys General Argue Before Supreme Court That Texas Suit Lacks Legal Support and Offers Zero Evidence of Systemic Voter Fraud
Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford has joined a coalition of 23 attorneys general urging the Supreme Court to reject Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s request that the Court overturn election results in four states critical to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. In an amicus brief, the coalition argues that Texas’s unprecedented suit depends on a misreading of the Constitution’s Electors Clause—one that clashes with a century of precedent, denies states’ power to make their own decisions about election administration and oversight, and threatens to upend the basic notions of states’ rights. Furthermore, the suit depends on unsupported claims of voter fraud, offering no evidence whatsoever of systemic fraud in the November election. In filing this brief, AG Ford and other attorneys general are asking the Court to throw out Texas’s suit against the four states.
“This last-minute attempt to throw out the results of a national election is unfounded in facts, unprecedented in our country’s history, and undermines fundamental principles of our democracy,” said AG Ford. “States run elections, and voters decide the outcome. As courts have concluded in countless cases across the nation, the states ran free, fair, and secure elections, and these baseless allegations of fraud have no evidentiary basis. American voters chose their next president. Never before has a state attempted to infringe on the right of another state and silence their voters simply because that state’s attorney general did not like the outcome of another state’s election.”
“Let’s be clear – this is an illegitimate case,” AG Ford continued. “It is a political ploy masquerading as a lawsuit, and a meritless one at that. Anyone associated with this craven attempt to score political points at the expense of our democracy should be ashamed of themselves. I am deeply disappointed and greatly regret the affect that this spectacle will have on what historically has been a civil and productive relationship between attorneys general who, despite different philosophies, often work together for the common good of our states’ residents.” (more…)

Oregon reports 1,586 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 13 new deaths
PORTLAND, Ore. — COVID-19 has claimed 13 more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,123, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
OHA also reported 1,586 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 89,838.
The number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients across Oregon is 576, which is four fewer than yesterday. There are 127 COVID-19 patients in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, which is five fewer than yesterday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
OHA updates guidance for quarantine
The updates to the new OHA guidance for quarantine follow the new CDC guidance. A person who has been exposed to the virus will need to quarantine if they have spent more than 15 minutes over a 24-hour period in close proximity (less than 6 feet away) with an infected individual. Quarantine means keeping someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.
If a person has been near someone with COVID-19 they should stay home and at least 6 feet away from everyone, including the people they live with, for 14 days.
A 14-day quarantine is the safest option to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others. If the person has not had any symptoms, they may consider ending quarantine early:
- After 10 days, without any testing, or
- After seven days, if they have had a negative result from an antigen or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test that was administered less than 48 hours before they end quarantine.
If they choose to shorten their quarantine period, there is a small chance they may spread the disease to others post-quarantine so it is critical that they continue monitoring their symptoms for 14 days.
If the person does develop symptoms, they should continue to avoid contact with others and call their healthcare provider to discuss testing.
There were no updates to the isolation guidelines.
The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Baker (11), Benton (30), Clackamas (101), Clatsop (13), Columbia (26), Coos (10), Crook (6), Curry (2), Deschutes (47), Douglas (20), Grant (1), Harney (2), Hood River (10), Jackson (60), Jefferson (52), Josephine (14), Klamath (38), Lake (2), Lane (117), Lincoln (7), Linn (58), Malheur (26), Marion (153), Morrow (14), Multnomah (400), Polk (30), Sherman (1), Tillamook (7), Umatilla (31), Union (2), Wallowa (1), Wasco (12), Washington (247), Yamhill (35).

Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford has joined a bipartisan coalition of 48 attorneys general in filing a lawsuit against Facebook Inc., alleging that the company has and continues to illegally stifle competition to protect its monopoly power. The lawsuit alleges that, over the last decade, the social networking giant illegally acquired competitors in a predatory manner and cut services to smaller competitors. These actions deprived users of the benefits of competition and reduced privacy protections and services. All of these actions were taken in an effort to boost Facebook’s bottom line through increased advertising revenue.
AG Ford and the coalition of attorneys general asks the court to halt Facebook’s illegal, anticompetitive conduct and block the company from continuing this behavior in the future. Additionally, the coalition asks the court to restrain Facebook from making further acquisitions valued at or in excess of $10 million without advance notice to the plaintiff states for review. Finally, the court is asked to provide any additional relief it determines is appropriate, including the divestiture or restructuring of illegally acquired companies, or current Facebook assets or business lines.
“Facebook is the most popular social networking platform in the world, with nearly 1.82 billion hits daily,” said AG Ford. “While it is a great tool to connect with people around the world and advertise products and businesses, Facebook’s conduct has violated antitrust laws and gained too much power in the market through legally improper tactics. One aspect of the law is to protect against the restraint of trade by individuals and businesses in the marketplace, and that’s exactly what my office is doing today—protecting Nevadans from legally improper actions that unlawfully restrict trade in this arena.” (more…)
If you’ve been near someone who has COVID-19, you may have been exposed to the virus. You will need to quarantine to keep from spreading the virus to someone else. Quarantine means keeping someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.
If you have been near someone with COVID-19:
- Stay home and at least six feet away from everyone, including the people you live with, for 14 days.
A 14-day quarantine is the safest option to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others. If you have not had any symptoms, you may consider ending quarantine early:
- After 10 days, without any testing, or

If you choose to shorten your quarantine period, there is a small chance you may spread the disease to others post-quarantine so it is critical that you continue to monitor yourself for symptoms daily.
If you develop symptoms, you should continue to avoid contact with others and call your healthcare provider to discuss testing.
Staying away from others can be difficult. It’s important to take care of yourself during these times. Here are some ideas for self-care during quarantine:
- Take time to do things you love – watch a movie, read a book or work in the garden.
- Connect with loved ones and friends over phone or video.
- Cook something you enjoy, or order contactless food delivery.
- Do something creative like art, woodworking or crafting.
- Exercise at home.

Three young men went on a multi day-and-night crime spree last weekend and early this week in Carson City, Reno and Sparks – that according to Carson City deputies as well as Reno and Sparks investigators. There appeared to be many individual crime scenes from Carson and throughout the Truckee Meadows.
Carson City Sheriff’s investigators say the crime spree was conducted by three young adults, two 18 year olds and one 20year old, armed up with BB guns, hatchets and machetes, driving around all three cities shooting out vehicle windows, business windows as well as apartment windows.
Sheriff’s investigators said the vandals returned to Carson City where they entered The Sportsman’s Warehouse on South Carson Street. An alert clerk spotted two of the young men stealing a BB gun. The clerk quickly called 9-1-1 and Sheriff’s Deputies soon had them in custody. The third suspect was caught hiding behind a nearby building.
Deputies say the trio were identified as: Kelvin Smith, 20, Logan Smith, 18 and Brandon ZaZa, 18. All three were arrested for what turned out to be 20 separate criminal events. All three were lodged in the Carson City Jail. Investigators went through the young men’s living quarters and found a wide array of weapons and illegal drugs like hash, meth and other illegal substances.

Attorney General Ford, 51 Attorneys General reach $86.3 Million Settlement with Mortgage Servicer Nationstar
Case settles allegations of past violations affecting thousands of ‘Mr. Cooper’ customers
Carson City, NV – Today, Attorney General Aaron D. Ford joined with 50 attorneys general and other federal and state agencies to reach an $86.3 million settlement with Nationstar Mortgage. Nationstar is the country’s fourth-largest mortgage servicer.
The consent judgment resolves allegations that Nationstar, which does business as “Mr. Cooper,” violated consumer protection laws during its servicing of mortgage loans. The settlement provides restitution for a variety of harms that were identified in the investigation. Thousands of borrowers had problems when their loans were transferred to Nationstar, leading to foreclosure in some circumstances.
“As your attorney general, I strive to protect consumers and homeowners in Nevada,” said AG Ford. “Borrowers who are current homeowners and those looking to become homeowners should not have to worry about questionable loan servicing practices and today’s settlement demonstrates that we will hold loan servicing companies who would harm Nevadans accountable.”
Today’s announcement reflects the success of collaborative efforts among state and federal law enforcement partners, including the United States Trustee Program (USTP), a component within the Department of Justice that seeks to promote the efficiency and protect the integrity of the bankruptcy system. The USTP is finalizing a separate agreement with Nationstar to address historical servicing issues impacting borrowers in bankruptcy.
The consent judgment, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, provides approximately $79.2 million in relief affecting 55,814 loans nationally. It covers conduct by Nationstar between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2017.
In Nevada, the settlement affects 941 loans for a total of $1,233,963.41 in relief. (more…)
