CARSON CITY — A federal appeals court on Friday upheld the dismissal of a case brought by a man who alleged Nevada state officials violated his civil rights by discharging him from a Las Vegas mental health facility and sending him to California by bus.

...Brown was discharged from the Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, 2013, and was bused to Sacramento, California, where he had no family or support waiting for him.

After an investigation of alleged cross-border dumping of mental patients, Nevada officials announced in April 2013 that two state employees were fired and three others were facing lesser discipline.
