Nevada’s gaming board has decided to have former Wynn Resorts’ CEO Steve Wynn out of the casino gambling industry.
The gaming board filed a complaint with the Nevada Gaming Commission demanding Steve Wynn to be banned from the industry. In its 23-page complaint, the gaming board said that Wynn is “unsuitable to be associated with a gaming enterprise or the gaming industry as a whole.”
The premises upon which the gaming board’s complaint rests are the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against the former CEO which have been found to be covered up by the company.
The complaint also points out that the severe accusations against Wynn hamper the reputation of the gambling industry in the state.
“In his capacity as a (if not the) key executive of a major casino, Mr. Wynn’s conduct was inimical to the public health, safety, morals, good order, and general welfare of the people of the State of Nevada,” the complaint says.
Most recently, a massage therapist at Wynn Las Vegas has filed a lawsuit against former Wynn Resorts Ceo, alleging mental abuse by creating a hostile environment where women were discouraged to protest or complain against sexual harassment they would face.
The lawsuit also alleges former Wynn Las Vegas President Maurice Wooden to be complicit with its former CEO Steve Wynn.
