LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Sands Corp. is asking a Nevada judge to throw out a second jury verdict awarding a former consultant a $70 million settlement in a breach-of-contract case.

Attorneys for the largest U.S. casino company have come up with 12 reasons a district judge should grant a second retrial. They are expected to present their arguments Tuesday.

Consultant Richard Suen says he is prepared to keep fighting for what he is owed. A Las Vegas jury found in his favor in June.

The Hong Kong businessman says he helped Sands win a gambling license in the Chinese enclave of Macau. He first sued the company, which is owned by billionaire GOP super donor Sheldon Adelson, in 2004.

A jury found for him in 2008, but Sands successfully petitioned for a retrial.
