On 18 March 2014, in an article titled,
“Shot by police in traffic stop, lawyer runs for DA; his felony trial and election are a week apart,”
the American Bar Association Journal reported:
“It isn’t clear whether (the current Clark County DA, Steve Wolfson’s) office will continue to prosecute Duensing, given the apparent conflict of interest that may now exist.”
