Significant filing today against Steve Wynn

20 May 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- “In direct connection with the U.S. Attorney General’s recent action against Steve Wynn for violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (“FARA”), we have filed a request for judicial notice in the Ninth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals in the civil RICO matter, Angelica Limcaco v. Steve Wynn, et al. (Case No. 21-56285). The allegations by the U.S. Attorney General directly coincide with the civil RICO matter, which alleges a ‘pattern’ of improper influence to protect business interests in the gaming industry,” stated Jordan Matthews, Esq., partner at Weinberg Gonser Frost LLP, lead counsel in the RICO case against Steve Wynn.

“In December 2020, after a thorough investigation, we filed a civil RICO case in Central District, California on behalf of Angelica Limcaco and against Steve Wynn, et al. over alleged attempts to use improper payments and influence to elevate Wynn Las Vegas’ counsel to the position of a judge in the Nevada District Court and to dismiss Limcaco’s case. We alleged that this directly coincided with Wynn’s efforts to salvage gaming licenses in Massachusetts on a $2.6 billion casino project set to open in June 2019—the licenses were threatened with being revoked due to an investigation triggered by the Plaintiff. We alleged a pattern of improper influence under the RICO statute, which directly coincided with Wynn’s alleged involvement in lobbying the prior Administration in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. We are pleased with the Department of Justice’s recent action against Steve Wynn, which substantiates the veracity of our claims and similarly alleges that Wynn ‘was motivated by his desire to protect his business interests in the PRC,’” Matthews concluded.
