LAS VEGAS (AP) — Elaine Wynn says she told the general counsel of Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts in 2009 that she had received information alleging her now ex-husband had “raped” an employee in 2005.
Elaine Wynn’s comment came Wednesday during a court hearing in a yearslong civil case involving her, her ex-husband and the casino-operator.
She says general counsel Kimmarie Sinatra later told her the accusation against Steve Wynn was “deemed not to have been an issue of concern for the company” and that it was “handled personally.”
The special hearing was meant for her attorneys to show that she reported to the company bad acts alleged against her ex-husband and others.
She has argued she was not re-nominated the company’s board of directors in 2015 because of her inquiries into company activities.
