Why Steve Wynn's 2005 Settlement With Worker Haunts Him

Steve Wynn’s settlement with a former employee in 2005 was done privately, but the secret refuses to go away. 

The casino mogul and his ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, have been battling over documents related to the employee’s allegations and a related settlement, which Elaine said was in the millions of dollars. Elaine’s attorneys are now placing that deal in the context of the larger debate over sexual harassment and corporate responsibility, which has emerged following allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein. A spokesman for Steve called the efforts a “smear campaign” that is “not supported by the facts.”
