    Former casino mogul Steve Wynn has filed a lawsuit to stop the public release of an investigative report involving alleged sexual misconduct.

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Thursday that the Massachusetts Gaming Commission's probe began in January.

    It was spurred by media reports that Wynn allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with female employees when he was a company executive.

    Wynn resigned as chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts in February and the company renamed its casino from Wynn Boston Harbor to Encore Boston Harbor after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against him.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Wynn has denied the allegations.

    The suit was filed Wednesday in Nevada's Clark County District Court.

    It says the commission's report contains or relies on Wynn's attorney-client privileged communications.

    The Massachusetts Gaming Commission said it would fight the lawsuit.
