Casino mogul and former Wynn Resorts CEO Steve Wynn has said that he cannot be held responsible for the allegations of sexual harassment against him. Wynn claims that because he is no longer associated with the company Nevada Gaming Commission has no right to penalize him.
Demanding that the lawsuit filed against him by the Nevada Gaming Commission be canceled, Wynn said that he no longer holds any financial interest in Wynn Resorts.
Former casino boss Steve Wynn has claimed that he cannot be held responsible for sexual harassment claims against him because he’s quite the gaming industry and is no longer legally tied to the company that bears his name.
Earlier in October, the gambling regulator filed a lawsuit to ban Steve Wynn from the gambling industry and alleged that he had violated the “suitability” requirements they maintain for casino license holders.
“The specific question presented is: Has the Nevada Legislature expressly or implied authorized Nevada’s gaming regulators to discipline a person who no longer has any involvement with a Nevada gaming licensee and, thus, no longer poses an alleged threat to the industry or the public at large?” write Wynn’s lawyers in the motion.
“We submit the answer to that question is a resounding ‘No.'”
Recently, a former Wynn Resorts employee filed a lawsuit against the casino and hospitality giant alleging that the company was spying on him after allegations of sexual misconduct against the former Wynn CEO Steve Wynn.
