Lawyers for a television show about the Clark County district attorney’s office said Tuesday that defense attorneys who want the show’s cameras banned from a murder trial made a “baseless” claim with the Nevada Supreme Court.
My Entertainment TV, the production company for Investigation Discovery’s “Las Vegas Law,” wants to film the trial of 24-year-old Michael Solid. He is accused in the slaying of 15-year-old Marcos Vicente Arenas, a Las Vegas high school student who was run over after he refused to give up his iPad on May 16, 2013.
Solid “will suffer no harm, much less irreparable harm, as My Entertainment TV’s cameras are indistinguishable from other media outlets,” Zastrow wrote. “In contrast … harm will come to My Entertainment as its cameras will be removed from the trial which is currently ongoing, thereby wholly depriving My Entertainment from being allowed to film this newsworthy trial.”
