The Municipal Court disputed the City’s ability to require it to reduce the salaries of Municipal Court employees who were exempt from the city charter provisions and civil service rules that govern City employees. The Court determined whether the separation of powers doctrine and the Municipal Court’s inherent authority bar the City of Sparks from interfering with the Municipal Court’s control over personnel decisions.
