The Nevada Gaming Commission moved Thursday for the state attorney general to appeal a ruling to the state Supreme Court over gaming regulators’ ability to find Steve Wynn unsuitable for a gaming license.

The Commission accepted the recommendation made earlier this month by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. The vote was unanimous without any discussion.

The Commission is appealing last month’s ruling by Clark County District Court Judge Adriana Escobar. Escobar wrote that gaming regulators lacked any authority on ruling on Wynn’s licensing once he stepped away from Wynn Resorts in 2018 after he was accused of sexually harassing employees — allegations denied by Wynn.

Wynn has not expressed any desire to return to the casino industry, but there’s a concern it could set precedent for future cases where someone is deemed unsuitable like in the case with Wynn.
