Just using a year before its much-ballyhooed grand opening in Everett, Wynn Resorts is facing new stuff just about every week. Here are some of your legal and regulatory battles the provider is fighting:
•?The fallout from sexual misconduct allegations against former CEO Steve Wynn has not yet been concluded. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is predicted to push out a its investigation from the accusations as well as company’s response while in the coming months. If ever the commission does find wrongdoing, it could possibly strip the casino’s license to use and force sales to a new company. Regulators in Nevada are also conducting their very own investigation.
•?On the summer, Anthony Gattineri, a former who owns the Everett land in which the casino now sits, filed a federal lawsuit alleging Wynn Resorts defrauded him within the land deal. Gattineri’s suit alleges Wynn Resorts promised him an added, secret payment without worrying about Gaming Commission’s knowledge but never paid him.
•?Mohegan Sun, another finalist for that Greater Boston casino license, continues to pursuing its lawsuit with the Gaming Commission, alleging it gave Wynn Resorts favorable treatment and wanted the provider to have the license without deliberation over other applicants. Mohegan Sun is asking a state judge to vacate Wynn’s license and order the commission to begin the license process before it starts.
