Attorney paying ex-casino mogul Steve Wynn defamation claim
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn has accepted an undisclosed financial settlement to end his federal defamation lawsuit against an attorney.
The attorney represented a dancer who she said accused Wynn of sexual harassment and retaliation.
Wynn’s lawyers on Tuesday gave The Associated Press a settlement document that included a statement from Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom.
Her statement retracted and withdrew claims she made in a news release in March 2018. The settlement amount was blacked out in the document.
A federal judge approved the agreement and dismissed the case Monday. Wynn is now 80 and lives in Florida. His statement declared the matter fully settled.
