LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas resort is suing a former employee,
alleging she misappropriated confidential information about
thousands of high-rolling gamblers and hotel guests.
A Nevada state judge on Friday ordered 31-year-old Jessica
Hemingway not to distribute the files she admits emailing from the
Palms Casino Resort to her home email accounts, and to give casino
officials access to her computer.
Hemingway and her fiance, Scott Yelton, say the information
hasn't been distributed.
They told Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez
the casino sued Hemingway on Tuesday after she alleged she had been sexually harassed by a supervisor and was fired.
The lawsuit says Hemingway worked as a casino host in the table
games department for nine months.
