Brothel Owner Sues Nye County Commissioner

Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof has launched legal action against Nye County Commissioner Andrew Butch Borasky over comments he made during a board meeting in November.

The Pahrump Valley Times reports the civil lawsuit was filed Dec. 28 in the Fifth Judicial Court in Pahrump, citing defamation of character, intentional infliction of emotional distress and intentional interference on business.

Hof and two other plaintiffs are seeking damages of $100,000 and an additional amount of $10,000 each.

Borasky’s said at the meeting in question “If I should disappear, get hit in the head with a brick, get run off the road or any other function to take my life away from me, then I would ask that they talk to Mr. Dennis Hof, Mr. Don Cox and Mr. Joe Burdzinski.”
