An appeals court in the US has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit by a former Wynn Resorts employee against former CEO Steve Wynn, who he accused of racketeering.
Now the lawyer representing former Wynn Las Vegas salon manager Angelica Limcaco has told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he will take the case to the US Supreme Court.
He is quoted as saying: “We are not deterred by the recent ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Similar to the Department of Justice, which recently brought claims against Steve Wynn and Tom Barrack (a former adviser to President Donald Trump) and which recently filed an appeal in the matter against Steve Wynn for his alleged violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, we will continue to vigilantly protect our client’s rights and will continue to bring tough cases.”
Limcaco alleged that she was blacklisted and intimidated into silence after reporting to her supervisors that Wynn had allegedly raped one of her employees in 2005. She appealed the civil racketeering decision in the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in California in early December. Wynn has denied the allegations.
