Vegas Casino Drops Suit Against Mourning Charity

A luxury casino on the Las Vegas Strip says it is dropping a lawsuit against an NBA player's charity because it has been paid in full for a convention bill from 2007 All-Star Week.

Jennifer Dunne of the Wynn Las Vegas resort says the $50,000 debt has been repaid, clearing Alonzo Mourning Charities Inc. of wrongdoing.

Neither Dunne nor a spokeswoman for the charity would say who paid the debt.

The lawsuit filed last month in Clark County District Court alleged that the charity used convention and meeting space for a fundraiser during All-Star Week.

According to a fan Web site for the Miami Heat player and an online promotional video, a charity billiards tournament and silent auction were held at Wynn Las Vegas on Feb. 15, 2007.
