Casino Mogul Says Even Wealthy Deserve Justice

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Casino tycoon and GOP super donor Sheldon Adelson has wrapped up three days on the witness stand with testimony in a multimillion dollar breach of contract case.

The Las Vegas Sands CEO told an attentive jury how he had built his $6.5 billion empire in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau.

The reclusive mogul presented a more combative face last week, when he spent nine hours under questioning by the legal team representing Richard Suen.

The Hong Kong businessman is suing Sands for $328 million that he claims he is owed for working behind the scenes to help the company win a Macau gambling license.

Former Sands chief operating officer William Weidner, who was fired by Adelson in 2009, is expected to testify later this week.
