Suen Gets $70 Million In Sands Case

(LAS VEGAS, A.P.,KXNT)– A jury has awarded a Hong Kong businessman a $70 million judgment against Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino giant run by billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Richard Suen claimed he was owed up to $328 million for helping the Las Vegas-based company secure a lucrative gambling license in Macau, the only place in China where casino gambling is legal.

Suen says he was hired by the Las Vegas Sands to curry favor with the Chinese government in the early 2000s and was successful.

Las Vegas Sands attorneys argued Suen was owed nothing because he didn’t make good on his promise to aid company executives.

The eight-person Clark County District Court jury deliberated for two full days before returning the award Tuesday.
