Adelson Accused Of Approving Prostitution

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Allegations have surfaced in a Nevada court that billionaire Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson personally approved allowing prostitution and knew about other illegal acts at his company’s casinos in the Chinese enclave of Macau.

Attorney Brad Brian, representing Las Vegas Sands Corp. and Sands China LTD., told a judge Thursday the allegations were “false” and “scurrilous.”

Attorneys for former Sands executive Steven Jacobs allege in court documents filed Wednesday that emails and electronic records about Adelson’s actions are missing from a cache of records the company has turned over in Jacobs’ civil lawsuit stemming from his dismissal in July 2010.

Jacobs accuses the company and Adelson of breach of contract and of pushing him into illegal activity.

The company alleges Jacobs stole confidential documents that might contain trade secrets.
