The Nevada Supreme Court reversed a district court order dismissing former casino mogul Steve Wynn’s defamation complaint against The Associated Press based on a published article reporting on two 2018 citizens’ complaints to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in which the complaint alleged that Wynn sexually assaulted a woman. The Court concluded that the trial judge, District Judge Ronald Israel, erred in dismissing The Associated Press from the case on fair report privilege grounds.
