LAS VEGAS (AP) - Casino billionaire and GOP super donor Sheldon Adelson is preparing to make a rare public appearance as he testifies against a Hong Kong businessman suing his company for $328 million.

Adelson blazed a trail of casino riches in Asia after doing the same thing in Las Vegas as CEO of Las Vegas Sands.

A series of former business associates have sued Sands for some of the staggering profits from the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau.

Plaintiff Richard Suen says he paved the way for Sands to enter Macau by arranging meetings between executives and Hong Kong officials. Sands says those meetings didn't help the company win a license.

Adelson, a longtime supporter of Israel and Republican candidates, made history last year when he became the biggest donor in political history.
