UNLV freshmen move into dorms

UNLV freshmen move into dorms

It was move in madness on UNLV's campus Wednesday. The university welcomed its biggest freshman class ever.

The school is seeing an unprecedented number of students choosing to live on campus this year. According to the school, 1,700 students are filling up its four residential complexes.

On Wednesday, 1,200 freshmen started moving in. The rest of the students start moving in Friday.

UNLV had a hard time coming up with rooms for everyone.

"We're at capacity this year and there was actually a waiting list. So we're even adding on some more students who are just signing up to live in the dorms," UNLV spokesperson Afsha Bawany said.

The university says it has a diverse freshman class with lots of international students and many coming from Nevada, California and Hawaii.

Incoming freshman Sterling Booker is coming from the Bay Area. He chose the school because of how close he is to family.

I-Team: Topless club lawyers in court again to try to reopen club

LAS VEGAS --  Lawyers for Club Paradise were back in court Wednesday, asking a judge to force Metro Police to turn over documents and videos that can help the club re-open.

The I-Team has been following the legal battle between police and the topless lounge, which started after at least one patron alleged he was drugged and had bogus charges added to his credit card.

The club was closed down in early June after Metro Police served search warrants looking for evidence of alleged credit card fraud by some of the entertainers or employees.

On Wednesday, transactions from one of the alleged victims in the case were introduced by lawyers for the club to help show the judge why records seized by police are needed for the club to dispute allegations of fraud.

The documents showed charges from a man named Jeff Yeagley, who was named as a victim in the search warrant.
