LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Sands Corp. denies allegations in a lawsuit that three elite executive security officers were not promoted because they are black. The Las Vegas Sun reports Sheldon Adelson’s the company responded Friday to new claims in a June lawsuit by nine executive security officers for Adelson and his family. Three of the nine claimed in a proposed amended lawsuit filed this month that they weren’t considered for higher-paying positions protecting Adelson because they are black. The company contends the three agents never complained.
