A state jury has awarded a Hong Kong business executive a $43.8
million judgment against Las Vegas Sands, the casino giant run by the
billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
Richard Suen, the executive, said he was owed up to $100 million for
helping the casino secure a gambling license in the Chinese enclave of
Macao. Suen said he was hired by Las Vegas Sands to win favor with the
Chinese government and was successful.
