The Nevada Gaming Control Board has set up a tip page on their website to field the many inquiries and requests to provide information regarding this matter.

One has to wonder how many callers are just curious and want info, and how many are making new claims of misconduct?

One has to ask themselves a few questions in a lawsuit situation

Lets say you were accused of these same accusations but you were innocent. Your lawyer says for only $17million it goes away. Then you can go about your real business of making billions?
Ok but if you were innocent then you were extorted by someone who just ssw they could make a quick buck. They got $17 million from you for practically nothing

So what stops them from saying hey this was easy. Lets send in my cousin to make the same false accusation. Then my sister and her cousin

Soon we can be worth over $100 million. Because everyone knows these suits arent settled because of guilt but so these rich guys can go about their business

Come on be serious. No one is gonna pay that kind of money risking more frivolous lawsuits. He practically admitted guilt by paying. He just hoped the general public wouldnt find out. A million dollar gamble that didnt pay off

Around 20 years ago my then group of around 20 doctors was accused of Medicare fraud. We believed we did nothing wrong, the federal prosecutor disagreed. I was the lucky one representing my group with our attorney at the only meeting I had in person with the prosecutor. He said that he did not believe we intentionally committed the fraud, but that we would have to pay a fine or face prosecution. The penalty for losing was $10,000, trebled, or $30,000, for EACH offense. Since over the time they said we were making the error there were maybe 10,000 such bills, if we lost we would be liable for $300,000,000. And be permanently prohibited from participating in Medicare, which essentially is a career ender. We were offered to settle for 400k, plus some other 400k in 'return of payments' to patients, which we were actually not going to return to patients, but write a check to the government! Our attorney said we had around a 75% chance to win the lawsuit if we fought it. He estimated his fees would be between 250k and 300K.

WE SETTLED despite not a one of us feeling we did anything wrong! After other shit on top of the 800k, it cost us around a million, so divided by 20 it cost me 50k, so really 35k in real dollars(I made 50k less that year so 15k less the government taxed me{about}).

I look at it like we were extorted. Since the risk of us fighting and losing was too high, we had no choice. I am guessing the 50k to me would be equivalent to $170million to Steve Wynn. JUST MAKE IT GO AWAY!

There's common sense, and then there's the law.

Common sense says your analysis is sensible: why pay big bucks unless there is a sound justification?

But the law says "prove it," and if there is a confidentiality clause in a settlement that prohibits discussion of the incident then another form of proof must be adduced, which if the complainant cannot discuss it would be damned hard to do.

Elaine simply telling her attorney she heard about it is not probative.

Regardless, the damage has been done.

LAS VEGAS (AP) A woman has told police she had a child with casino mogul Steve Wynn after he raped her, while another has reported she was forced to resign from a Las Vegas job after she refused to have sex with him.



Is the GOP still refusing to return the rapist's money?

"One woman told the Las Vegas police that in the early '70s Wynn raped her more than once in her Chicago apartment. She claimed she "ended up pregnant."

MORE THAN ONCE IN HER APARTMENT, really ???

ALLEGED!!

Why don't you just ask him if he's still raping women?
