Lawyer Files Another Suit Over Nevada’s Motorcycle Helmet Law

May 29, 2012

An attorney has filed another lawsuit challenging southern Nevada’s authorities’ enforcement of a state law requiring motorcyclists to wear helmets.

The Las Vegas Sun reports Travis Barrick is taking a different approach with his latest suit, three months after a similar suit he filed was tossed by a federal judge.

Last year, he sued Clark County, Las Vegas and four other cities in the county on behalf of 12 motorcyclists who thought they complied with the helmet law by wearing gear such as “skull caps” and crown-like novelty helmets.

In the latest suit, motorcyclist David Stilwell alleges three police officers in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Boulder City made subjective decisions when they cited him for wearing similar headgear.

The suit was filed Friday in federal court.
