Ex-salon chief alleges Wynn Resorts spied at his new job

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former beauty salon director who went public about sexual misconduct allegations against casino mogul Steve Wynn is suing Wynn Resorts and executives, alleging they invaded his privacy and spied on him at his next job in a bid to undercut his accounts.

Jorgen Nielsen’s civil lawsuit, filed Thursday, accuses corporate chief executive Matt Maddox, former general counsel Kim Sinatra and former security director James Stern of civil conspiracy and other damaging acts.

In a statement, the company says it authorized no inappropriate surveillance activity, and calls the lawsuit meritless.

Steve Wynn isn’t a named plaintiff. He stepped down from his casino company in February 2018 — shortly after Nielsen was quoted in The Wall Street Journal commenting about employees fears’ of Wynn.

Wynn is also suing Nielsen, claiming defamation.
