LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) --
There are serious questions about inspections that take place in the Las Vegas valley after News 3 broke a story in July about a bankrupt wedding business called Griffin Mansions.
| Inspecting Our Inspectors: Check out Michelle Velez’s two-part investigative story tonight on News 3 at 5 and 6.|
The mansion's owners had failed numerous inspections while trying to get permits and a business license, but nobody shut them down even after both Clark County and Health Department inspectors determined the property was a threat.
The mansion, located near southern highlands, had been operating in the valley for several years, holding roughly four weddings a week.
It wasn't until wedding guests became sick in May that the property was eventually closed.
In July, the owners filed for bankruptcy, leaving couples from around the world and the valley in a very tough spot. They lost their money and their dream weddings.
Turns out Griffin's owners operated for several years without the necessary permits, and most everyone involved in the permitting process was aware of problems there.
