S.F. City Attorney Threatens Lawsuit Against Nevada for Psychiatric Patient Dump

San Francisco is threatening to sue Nevada for allegedly dumping some 500 psychiatric patients in California. The San Francisco Chronicle says City Attorney Dennis Herrera plans to send a letter today to Nevada Attorney General Catherine Masto.

The paper says a draft of the letter threatens a class-action lawsuit against Nevada unless it reimburses California cities and counties for the costs of dealing with the patients and adopts interstate transfer rules for patients.
