    Regulators Find Wynn Resorts Hid Misconduct Allegations

    The sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn were the topic at a hearing at the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

    (Published Tuesday, April 2, 2019)

    Wynn Resorts is proposing Massachusetts regulators require the company ban its founder from its resorts as a condition of keeping its state casino license.

    The company also suggests the Massachusetts Gaming Commission impose other conditions to further distance the company from its namesake, such as prohibiting company executives from having social contact with Steve Wynn.

    It's not clear why Wynn Resorts isn't pursuing the proposed steps on its own. Company spokespeople didn't comment Thursday.

    The commission is considering the company's fate after its investigators found executives for years concealed allegations of sexual misconduct against Steve Wynn.
