Steve Wynn wishes to file a lawsuit against Wynn Hotels.

Let it never be said that casino and gambling industry magnate Steve Wynn did not contribute to the industry’s excitement. The latest development in the plot is that he is now suing his former employer, Wynn Hotels, for millions of dollars. The hotel chain is being sued for allegedly disclosing confidential information to Gaming Commission investigators. In the court proceedings, the Gaming Commission and its chief of investigations have also been added as defendants.

The documents reportedly contain information about Steve Wynn’s involvement in a sexual harassment lawsuit. The only reason why the documents were in Wynn Hotels’ possession was because the information was part of a shared litigation proceeding. Due to the manner in which it managed the initial complaints against him, the company was added as a party to the joint litigation suit.


No shock for the Commission

According to Gaming Commission Executive Director Edward Bedrosian, Wynn’s lawsuit was not unexpected. He had petitioned the court for relief in the form of an injunction prohibiting the dissemination of any additional investigation-related information.


Bedrosian stated that the move was so predictable that the commission had already briefed and retained counsel in Nevada to expedite the interdict proceedings so that the actual adjudication hearing could begin.


No Individual Incident

According to Bedrosian, the commission anticipates making public its findings regarding Wynn’s alleged sexual misconduct by the start of December. Multiple allegations of sexual misconduct have been investigated by the commission, as well as the group’s response at the time the allegations were made.


According to a report published by the Wall Street Journal in January of this year, Wynn was responsible for multiple counts of sexual misconduct spanning more than a decade. In addition, he allegedly paid a $7.5 million settlement to a manicurist who had accused him of sexual misconduct. The Gaming Commission is involved because the settlement in issue was not disclosed during the group’s initial application for a license.
