LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on a court hearing in a civil case involving Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts and its founders (all times local):

6 p.m.

Attorneys for Steve Wynn’s ex-wife have shown portions of depositions of him and Wynn Resorts’ general counsel in a court hearing meant for their client to show evidence that she reported to the company bad acts she has alleged against him and others.

The hearing Tuesday is the latest move in a yearslong civil case involving Elaine Wynn, her ex-husband and the company they founded.

Elaine Wynn has accused her ex-husband and others of removing her from the company’s board of directors in 2015 because of her inquiries into company activities. She has claimed that she was not re-nominated to be a board member that year as a result of retaliation.

Steve Wynn’s deposition focused on the alleged illegal gambling activities of two executives.

The hearing will continue Wednesday.

Lawyers for the casino mogul’s ex-wife say they have evidence of Steve Wynn’s pattern of reckless behavior and mismanagement of Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts.

They will present their evidence during a hearing that will begin Tuesday in state court in Las Vegas. It’s the latest move in a yearslong civil case involving the billionaire, his former spouse Elaine Wynn and the casino-operating company they founded.

Elaine Wynn has accused her ex-husband and others of getting her off the company’s board of directors in 2015 because of her inquiries into company activities.

The hearing could feature witnesses and previous deposition testimony.

Steve Wynn last month resigned as chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts amid sexual misconduct allegations that were first reported by the Wall Street Journal. He has vehemently denied the accusations the newspaper reported.
