The Las Vegas city attorney says that only a City Council majority or the city manager can request a legal opinion from the city attorney.
But the provision in the city Governing Body Rules of Procedure, which City Attorney Carlos Quiñones cited, never mentions that the city manager can request an opinion.
Indeed, it refers only to supplemental opinions, which would come from a law firm other than the city attorney. It says nothing about legal opinions requested of the city attorney himself.
