Steve Wynn, the ousted co-founder of Wynn Resorts, has filed a case against his former company and the Massachusetts Gaming Commission in his bid to block the release of any investigative report that might leak “privileged material.”

Wynn’s allegation is that his former company wrongly handed over privileged documents to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for its investigation into allegations of misconduct raised against him in Wall Street Journal in February. He resigned from the company’s board following the allegations and sold his entire 12.1 per cent stake in the company. Wynn’s lawsuit argues that the information contained in materials handed to the commission was subject to attorney-client privilege during his time as Wynn Resorts CEO.

 “Recognizing that they have conducted their months-long investigation into Wynn Resorts with total disregard for protecting the privileged communications of Mr Wynn—who, again, has no ability to determine what communications and materials have been provided to regulators—Mass Gaming officials have simply donned the judge’s robe, cracked the gavel and unilaterally determined that Mr Wynn has failed to sustain his burden of establishing that any privilege applies to the unknown universe of documents acquired during the Mass Gaming investigation,” the lawsuit states.
