Wynn Harassment Probe Nears End, But Troubles Far From Over

Wynn Resorts Ltd. may soon wrap up one aspect of its months-long struggle since its former chief executive officer was accused of rampant sexual harassment, as a special committee looking into the complaints completes its work. The committee will conclude the probe in the third quarter, after interviewing 114 people and reviewing more than 3 million pages of documents, Director Patricia Mulroy said Wednesday at the company’s annual meeting in Las Vegas. The board expanded the scope of its probe after co-founder Steve Wynn stepped down as CEO in February following a wave of allegations.
