Wynn Resorts proposes banning its namesake from its casinos | AP business

Australian billionaire James Packer's casino operator Crown Resorts said this week it was discussing a A$9.99 billion sale to Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts

Wynn, who is now facing a laundry list of sexual misconduct allegations from his time as CEO of the gaming giant, would not be allowed on property in Las Vegas, Macau, or the proposed Encore Boston Harbor.

Wynn Resorts Chairman Phil Satre offered his support for Maddox in the wake of the NGCB's affirmation, stating, "In the past 12 months, the Wynn Resorts Board of Directors - independent and with no extensive pre-existing relationships with each other or the executive team - have been keenly focused on establishing the right direction and leadership for the company. Matt will do an excellent job leading our team of 25,000 employees worldwide, and with the expected opening of our US$2.6 billion Encore Boston Harbor destination resort in Everett, Massachusetts".

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission settled a lawsuit with Wynn in February, obtaining a report about Wynn's history of sexual misconduct and allowing the organization to continue their investigation into whether or not the company is fit to run a casino in their state.

"Wynn Resorts didn't dispute the facts of this nearly 200-page report and said it signifies a" complete review".

In addition, the company issued a statement earlier this week that its current CEO Matt Maddox was "found suitable as an officer of Wynn Resorts" by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. The company's top brass has appeared before the MGC to respond to questions and the commission is now in a position to determine whether or not the license should be revoked or if Wynn deserves a financial penalty like it received from Nevada gaming officials.

The Las Vegas gaming and hospitality giant filed this past Monday a 49-page legal brief with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission that contained 13 measures the company plans to introduce in a bid to prove its suitability to operate the $2.6 billion Encore Boston Harbor.

Wynn Resorts went through a similar critique in Nevada in which it had been passed down a record $20 million fine but permitted to maintain its own casino permit.
