A Reuters report states that U.S. casino owner Steve Wynn won $20 million in punitive damages for defamation on Tuesday, doubling his total judgment in a lawsuit accusing Joe Francis, founder of a video series featuring college-age women exposing themselves for the camera, of publicly stating on several occasions that Wynn wanted him killed with a shovel and buried in the desert.
According to Reuters, the outcome on Tuesday gave Wynn a third legal victory in a dispute with Francis that grew out of the debt Wynn claimed Francis had run up during a gambling spree in 2007.
