LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal judge is considering whether to unseal documents in a case filed by members of an elite security team that protects the family of Las Vegas Sands Corp. Chairman Sheldon Adelson.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that U.S. District Court Judge Philip Pro gave the parties until next Thursday to agree which information should be made public.
The judge says the presumption is that documents should not be sealed.
Nine current and former members of the casino company’s executive protection detail allege they’re owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime by Las Vegas Sands and the company’s flagship Las Vegas Strip resort, The Venetian.
Las Vegas Sands lawyers argue that the security of Adelson and his family would be compromised if documents are made public.
