I didn't know it was Wynn v. Francis; I just thought Francis was making a claim.

So, Steve W. will add this to the other couple $1m's that Francis owes him from gambling?

Wynn has sued before to protect his reputation.

He hammered the publisher Lyle Stuart in a libel action.

It was overturned on appeal, and Wynn chose not to pursue.

That could happen here, too.

What are the chances of Wynn getting paid? Close to zero I imagine. Wynn has stated that Francis owes him something like $2.5 million in gambling debts. Didn't Francis run into IRS problems too?

Wynn got another $20 million worth of Disney money added to his damages.

It was a civil case, Wynn will never see a dime.

Wynn doesnt need to see a dime. The verdict alone is what he wanted.
