Steve Wynn Still Under Scrutiny, Says Massachusetts Gaming Commission

The casino that is embattled resigned as CEO and chairman of Wynn Resorts in February in the wake of a Wall Street Journal article that accused him of a lengthy pattern of sexual misconduct against feminine employees.
Dealing with certification suitability investigations in several jurisdictions, he later sold their entire majority stake in the business, as the board sought to protect its gaming licenses by severing all ties to its founder.
But the MGC — which is reexamining Wynn Resorts’ suitability for licensing in Boston, where it is building its $2.4 million Wynn Boston Harbor — is not done with Wynn at this time.
Wynn and Wynn Resorts passed licensing suitability tests before they won the sole east Massachusetts casino license in 2014 after a hard-fought competitive bidding process with Mohegan Sun. But Wynn’s alleged failure to declare a $7.5 million settlement to a Wynn Resorts manicurist who reported assault that is sexual the regulator to revisit the instance.
Wynn Reputation to Be Decided
In a letter dated March 27, Wynn’s attorney asserted that the divestiture of Wynn’s stocks precluded him from further scrutiny and that he would no longer react to requests for information from the commission.
‘As Mr. Wynn is no more a qualifier of any commission licensee, there is no longer any regulatory or statutory justification to continue the commission’s inquiry into Mr. Wynn’s suitability being a qualifier regarding the commission,’ stated Wynn’s attorney. ‘The commission no longer has jurisdiction over Mr. Wynn — he is a private Nevada citizen unaffiliated with Wynn Resorts LLC or any commission licensee.’
But based on the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the MGC has scheduled a hearing for May by which they will seek to ascertain whether Wynn has certainly removed himself from the company and whether or not he remains a ‘qualifier’ in the licensing procedure.
‘The payment’s decision at the hearing will not end the current investigation by the Investigation Enforcement Bureau as towards the allegations of intimate harassment and misconduct against Steve Wynn or the handling of those allegations by Wynn Resorts Ltd. and its particular officers and directors,’ said the MGC. ‘The hearing may also perhaps not start thinking about whether other employees, board users, shareholders or other companies that are wynn remain as qualifiers.’
Elaine Wynn Accuses Hagenbuch
Meanwhile, Elaine Wynn — now the shareholder that is major of Resorts after her estranged ex-husband’s departure from the business — has required the elimination of John Hagenbuch from the board, one of three directors involved in Wynn Resorts own internal investigation of Steve Wynn’s alleged behavior.
She reported in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that Hagenbuch’s loyalties are too closely aligned with her ex-husband.
Last week, Wynn Resorts directors rebuffed Ms. Wynn’s demand for an overhaul that is complete of board to displace the business’s reputation. Instead, the board nominated three women of their choosing that is own for at the business’s forthcoming AGM.
