The Los Angeles Times reports that a Los Angeles County Superior Court jury found that Joe Francis knowingly made false statements when he told reporters and others that Wynn threatened to kill him and bury his body in the desert over a $2 million bill he ran up during a multi-day gambling spree in 2007.
According to the L.A. Times report, the award surpassed the $12 million Wynn's attorneys had asked for and swelled Francis's already substantial debt to the Las Vegas billionaire to almost $30 million.
