Wynn Lawyers Raise Jurisdiction Issue In Nevada License Case
Attorneys for former Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn say Nevada gambling regulators can't discipline him over allegations of workplace sexual harassment because he's no longer licensed by the state or affiliated with the company that carries his name.
A document submitted Monday ahead of a Dec. 19 state Gaming Commission hearing says the panel has no jurisdiction and no authority to fine Wynn or revoke his suitability for a license.
Wynn resigned as Wynn Resorts chairman and chief executive in February following reports that several women said he harassed or assaulted them. He denies all allegations against him.
