Elaine Wynn said a Wynn Resorts Ltd. in-house lawyer who was told in 2009 about an “alleged rape" of an employee by her former husband, Steve Wynn, called it a “personal” matter.

The ex-wife of the company’s founder testified Wednesday for the first time in open court about the allegations of sexual misconduct that led Steve Wynn to step down as chairman and chief executive officer of his casino empire last month.
