Steve Wynn Wins $7.5 Million Defamation Suit Against Joe Francis

It’s been an ugly back and forth battle but casino magnate Steve Wynn has come out on top in a very big way, winning his $7.5 million defamation lawsuit against “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis. 

The suit was filed following Francis’ proclamation that Wynn “deceived his high-end customers”. 

A Clark County judge determined damages to Wynn’s reputation at $5 million, adding $2.5 million in punitive damages. 

Francis' lawyer, David Houston, tells TMZ, "We will appeal this order.  Joe was not allowed to defend himself."

Wynn and Francis have been fighting for years after the “Girls Gone Wild” founder reportedly failed to pay a $2 million marker Wynn said he owed to his casino.
