(LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL) A Las Vegas man who had trouble getting coverage through the state exchange’s Nevada Health Link website is a co-plaintiff in the first class action lawsuit filed over the troubled insurance marketplace.

Local personal-injury law firm Callister &Associates filed the lawsuit on behalf of Larry Basich, who went uncovered even after paying premiums as far back as November, and a local woman named Lea Swartley, who also has gone without coverage despite paying for a plan and was due to give birth Tuesday night.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court of Nevada on Tuesday afternoon against the state of Nevada, Xerox and the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, which runs Nevada Health Link.
