Wynn Resorts plans to start construction as early as December on the first phase of its $1.5 billion Paradise Park, creating a white sand lagoon waterfront featuring attractions in Las Vegas, the company said Tuesday. "We've got all these great ideas that are going into this lagoon and this beach front property," said Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn during the resort giant's first-quarter earnings call. The new park was first disclosed last year at its analyst day event but Wynn said Tuesday on the call the company's board of directors had now approved the project and indicated construction will start in six or seven months. Paradise Park would be located on a nearly 130-acre golf course property owned by the company and adjacent to Wynn's existing casino resort in the famed gambling city.

Companies and plaintiffs are engaged in a fight over where lawsuits seeking financial compensation for injuries should be filed.
