Las Vegas casino lawsuit against NBA - by mistake

Las Vegas casino lawsuit against NBA - by mistake Wynn Las Vegas Casino said on Sunday that the lawsuit they filed against NBA and a player's charity should not have included the Association. Wynn Casino, located on the Las Vegas Strip, filed a $50,000 lawsuit on June 16th for an unpaid convention bill from 2007 All-Star Week, naming NBA Properties, NBA Entertainment and Alonzo Mourning Charities in the lawsuit.

 Jennifer Dunne, spokesman for the Las Vegas casino, however, said the lawsuit seeking payment from the NBA and a player's charity should have only been filed against Alonzo Mourning Charities, Inc., not against NBA Entertainment and NBA Properties. According to Dunne, the mistake was due to an "administrative error' and will be corrected this week. According to the lawsuit, the casino alleges that the charity used convention and meeting space for a fundraiser during the All-Star Week, but failed to pick up the $50,000 tab. Wynn Las Vegas Casino last month recovered a $400,000 gambling debt from retired basketball star Charles Barkley after filing a lawsuit against the basketball legend.
