Wynn sues over re­port of mis­con­duct

Pawtucket Times - - REGION/OBITUARIES -

LAS VE­GAS (AP) — For­mer casino mogul Steve Wynn has filed a law­suit to stop the pub­lic re­lease of an in­ves­tiga­tive re­port in­volv­ing al­leged sex­ual mis­con­duct.

The Las Ve­gas Re­view-Jour­nal re­ported Thurs­day that the Mas­sachusetts Gam­ing Com­mis­sion’s probe be­gan in Jan­uary.

It was spurred by me­dia re­ports that Wynn al­legedly en­gaged in sex­ual mis­con­duct with fe­male em­ploy­ees when he was a com­pany ex­ec­u­tive.

Wynn re­signed as chair­man and CEO of Wynn Re­sorts in Fe­bru­ary and the com­pany re­named its casino from Wynn Bos­ton Har­bor to En­core Bos­ton Har­bor af­ter sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions sur­faced against him.

Wynn has de­nied the al­le­ga­tions.

The suit was filed Wed­nes­day in Ne­vada’s Clark County Dis­trict Court.

It says the com­mis­sion’s re­port con­tains or re­lies on Wynn’s at­tor­ney-client priv­i­leged com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

The Mas­sachusetts Gam­ing Com­mis­sion said it would fight the law­suit.
