Stanley Ho Casino Stake Saga Continues With Lawsuit

The three-day public wrangle over Stanley Ho’s casino empire took yet another twist as a lawsuit accused family members of illegally taking control of his assets, a day after the Macau billionaire said the dispute was settled.

Amid conflicting statements made by Ho and his family, his lawyer Gordon Oldham filed the writ late yesterday in Hong Kong’s High Court. While the 89-year-old Ho announced on television that he no longer needed Oldham’s services, the lawyer says he still represents the tycoon and the writ appears to carry Ho’s signature.
