The commission is set to meet today to discuss legal strategy in a legal case involving Steve Wynn.

US.- The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has scheduled a closed executive session for today in order to discuss legal strategy in a legal case that involves Steve Wynn, who filed a lawsuit against the commission’s investigator Karen Wells.

Steve Wynn, former CEO and co-founder of Wynn Resorts, filed a six-count lawsuit in an attempt to block the release of Wells’ investigative report as he claimed that it contained confidential information and documents that Wynn says should be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Aviva Gordon of Gordon Law Las Vegas explained that the closed session would allow attorneys to come up with a strategy, Las Vegas Review Journal reported. “I suspect the Nevada Gaming Commission also wants to protect its own privilege with counsel, which is why they would have it in an executive and closed session to have their lawyers explain the allegations that have been made and the ramifications and not to share it in a public setting,” she said.
