The lawsuit was filed by Wynn Las Vegas, which operates Encore.
“Rest assured, Wynn will not sit idly when anyone engages in mayhem or safeguards imposed by the government in violation of Nevada law, citizens read the complaint.” “Vienna will aggressively pursue all options to capture these individuals as long as they run from Wayne’s buildings and away from Nevada’s borders.”
Earlier this week, the Metropolitan Police Department said violent visitors “would not be tolerated”, with its Downtown Area Command arresting 28 people and issuing 27 citations on Friday of Labor Day weekend.
It is unclear whether any of those people will be named in the lawsuit, which identified all 20 defendants as “DOE individuals” only.
Videos of a fight that broke out inside Encore aired on social media over the weekend.
The video showed people inside a hallway swinging at other guests and casino security as crowd watches. The visitors eventually dispersed, and dropped a velvet rope back to the ground.
The lawyers wrote, “Although their actions could have been isolated, the losses to Wayne and the gaming industry are still being affected by the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic.” “Wynn is willing to do whatever is necessary to do what is necessary to provide the same and legal treatment available against these individuals to all possible charges.”
Wynn Resorts Ltd. Michael Weaver, spokesman for the company, also said the company would increase its room rates and investment in its security workforce and processes after the fight. The company had no record of being injured by the incident.
“We intend to take action that engages in similar behavior to Wynn or Encore in the future,” Weaver wrote in an email on Friday. “We have zero tolerance for disruptive or violent behavior.”
With the trespass, the lawsuit filed in Clark County district court claimed that those involved in the clashes early Sunday caused a nuisance and “put Wynn in front of the public in a false light.”
The complaint states, “Wynn seeks to eliminate any misconceptions that Wynn will tolerate any intrusion for the safety and well-being of its guests and employees.” “Wyn won’t.”
